Reviews

What one takes away from this half-memoir is the self-portrait of an extraordinarily good, wrongly modest man; a distinguished scholar, and one of the finest of current novelists -- John Sutherland * Spectator *
As a piece of reportage from the third quarter of the English 20th century this is a sociologist's paradise * Guardian *
An outstanding memoir... Lucid and witty * Irish Times *
A fascinating and moving read * Financial Times *
Quite a Good Time to be Born is a record of success, free of boasting or malice. Anyone with some knowledge of academia or the literary world will find it full of interest -- Allan Massie * Scotsman *
