Item description for Remnants of a Quiet Life by Henry Harris...

Oxford University is one of the great universities of the world, a national treasure and a place where some of the best and brightest from many countries wish to study. It is true that its ways are old and its traditions often a little incongruent with some aspects of modern life and passing trends. But its enduring qualities have not been achieved by ritual or by managerial skill, they derive wholly from the dedication of the men and women who are its members and custodians. This book, a collection of fictional episodes written by one of its longest-serving and most respected members, and at the same time one of the most significant scientists of his generation, reveals much of the humanity that is integral to its vitality and strength. It provides a rare view of the academic life and of the deeper nature of the University of which the author will forever be a part.

Reviews - What do customers think about Remnants of a Quiet Life?

Short "stories"? Perhaps.  Oct 6, 2007
A very British, precisely written, quietly fascinating and insightful book. It may be 'fiction', but only in the details, I suspect. I thoroughly enjoyed it for the snapshots of British acadamia and European intellectual life, the varieties of types of human beings portrayed, and the style of writing.
