Customer Review

on 5 May 2014
Professor Carey is a superb guide to authors and works to which I've been 'exposed' in various degrees, but for many of which I felt no enthusiasm. He has corrected this, with a remarkably interwoven autobiography organized around his reading, thinking and writing. A second, equally compelling reason for my interest is that Carey was a student at Oxford only shortly after my father, and at the same college; so he names some people I know my father knew, which gives the book a further potent charge. The evocation of England in the fifties, sixties and seventies is fascinating to me; I'm not sure how much this will engage other readers, but regardless, I strongly recommend this book as a literate and engagingly partial transit through literature.
