Opening with his wartime exploits in North Africa and Italy, this sequel to Richard Hoggart's first volume of autobiography, "A Local Habitation", recalls his teaching career in the North-East of England and charts his rise in the literary world from his pioneering study of W.H.Auden to "The Uses of Literacy", the book that not only exerted a profound and radical influence, but also made him an overnight celebrity. Hogart's story sweeps us from troopships to Eisenhower's America, and from literary London to Philip Larkin's Hull. The book should appeal to admirers of Hoggart's other work, those interested in investigations of class and British society since the Second World War.show more
