A book that improves lives
On November 5, 2013 | 0 Comments

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.
