Publisher's Summary

To Porterhouse College, Cambridge, famous for rowing, low academic standards. and a proud cuisine, comes a new Master, an ex-grammar-school boy, demanding Firsts, women students, a self-service canteen, and a slot-machine for contraceptives. There is considerable opposition to this challenge to the established order, in the form of Skullion, the intransigent porter at Porterhouse, who is determined that the hallowed traditions of the College will never change.

enjoyable satire

Wonderfully narrated satire.Tom sharpe is a clever writer and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the work to life. Somehow he micked the whole British class system with all of it's arrogance and crusty ignorance.I was actually dissappointed when it ended.

Any additional comments?

I listened to this author for the first time traveling in tandem with other family members on the way to a funeral.. several hundred miles, through several states. They looked on in wonder trying to figure out why I was laughing so hard at such a sober, and sad event . Just another great piece of work by this man. All of his early work is a must have for me, in print as well as audible..
