  • Just Being Alive: A Memoir of Struggle and Self-acceptance

  • A Scientific Life

    by Graham Richards
    All generations of students think that they are special and possibly unique. Those of us who went up to Brasenose College in Oxford in 1958 can justify that claim better than most, particularly if that ‘Class’ includes, as is reasonable, those who came up in 1959 but went into the second year and hence took their Finals with most of us: the Class of 1961 in the north American usage, which dates by the year of graduation rather than of matriculation. The most notable additions were the several Rh... more
