We like the sounds of libcom.org: a resource for all people who wish to fight to improve their lives, their communities and their working conditions.’
And their blog is a work of great taste. Part of fighting to improve lives is sharing books which make a difference, They’ve just focused on The Deconstruction of Professor Thrub, and here is their review.
We obviously scan for the quotable bit, and here you go:
‘A historical epic, a story about love, revolution and the university, with echoes of Luther Blissett’s Q and a lot of laughs, this is a great book which entertains, confuses and educates in equal measure. You should read it!’
(The bold lettering is our own. We mean it appreciatively.)
A particular joy of this review is that it rounds itself off with a substantial snippet from the book itself, a bracing piece of Barry’s philosophy of life. Worth reading, even if the book is already established as one of your favourites.
