The bookstore mistakenly sent me this one instead of Janet Frame's A State of Siege; thought I might as well read it—but now I'm doubly disappointed I didn't get the right book.

My mother had been recommending the first of the Strangers and Brothers books for sometime. Perhaps it was because if the strongvrevommrndation that I found it a little underwhelming. The story follows Lewis as he grows up, his early childhood, his father's business failure and on as his makes his way on the career ladder. Lewis is someone with whom one feels sympathy, he is poor but ambitious, working hard to rise above his working class origins at a time when this was much harder.

However, Lewis in love is not so engaging. He has the misfortune to love a woman who doesn't return his affections and instead becomes a dead weight, holding him back from a promising career. There are times when reading this when you want to shake him and shout "pull yourself together man", something his friends continually advise but Lewis is deaf.

It's an engaging read for the wonderful characters who are very real, even if it's a bit if a frustrating story.

1959 is the year in which this text was written (or actually the corresponding speech given). It now sounds not only as an anticipation of a "third culture" that we might (maybe) recognize in the diffusion of new medias. It's also a brilliant, euro-centric view on our educational situation. Plus, it gives an interesting view of industrial revolution consequences.

A beautiful psychological study of Cambridge academics and the mental anxieties and acrobatics hidden behind polite exteriors as they jockey for institutional position. The Cambridge culture is now superseded and particular, but the experience is universal in higher education.
