Back cover text:

A collection of diary entries from the dean of the fictional St. Andrew's College, Edinburgh. Long suffering and cantankerous, he documents the comings and goings of eccentric professors, academic triumphs and failures and the disastrous outcome of a physics department’s experiment resulting in the magnetisation of the number 42 bus.


David Purdie is arguably our best after-dinner speaker of the moment. - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
