This book should be relished by readers interested in philosophy, history, the Monarchy, the Church, politics, literature, fiction, religion, psychology, names, and language. It contains eleven wide-ranging and carefully-crafted essays by a veteran of academia in the UK and Canada. They are not works of erudition, and contain no learned footnotes or appendices. They are written with a light touch for the general reader. Now in his nineties, their author retains vestiges of the classical education he received at Tonbridge School and at Magdalen College, Oxford. Despite many years in university teaching and administration, his sense of the ludicrous remains intact. Shafts of drollery flit playfully across his pages.
