But Patricia Craig has done her job too well. Beneath the surface jollity, this is a slightly melancholy book

But Patricia Craig has done her job too well. She has not only found a classic bit of Kingsley Amis from one of his best, but lesser known, books (What Became of Jane Austen?), but she has rescued an equally good bit of Evelyn Waugh from one of his worst, A Little Learning. Beneath the surface jollity, this is a slightly melancholy book. The history of English education (and it is English, by and large, not British that Patricia Craig deals with) is not something that fills the heart with pride. The 'dreadful schism' brings out the worst of the English in both sectors: a sacrifice of high standards to dogma and meanness.

Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. So when you pack for your European jaunt, you'd do well to include Patricia Craig's anthology of travel stories.

"School", wrote Henry Green, "is no odder than the world outside, only more concentrated." It is also an experience that everyone has to undergo, and many people have left accounts of their schooldays inspired either by repugnance or regret. Drawing on fiction, memoirs, autobiography, poetry and letters, this anthology presents an enthralling selection of attitudes to schools and schooling. All manner of institutions are described, from village schools to state comprehensives, charity schools, public schools, private schools and grammar schools, with some (usually) fond reminiscences of primary schools for good measure. Pupils and teachers have their say, Miss Jean Brodie alongside Dr Arnold, Winston Churchill rubbing shoulders with Nicholas Nickleby. Through it all run the anarchic exploits of the heroes and heroines of the school story - Billy Bunter and the Greyfriars mob, Stalky & Co, William Brown, Tom Brown, and the creations of T.B. Reed and Angela Brazil.
