About the Author

Richard Hoggart is a distinguished cultural critic and author of The Uses of Literacy, his most celebrated book. Formerly Professor of English at Birmingham he has sat on many government advisory committees and was Chairman of the National Book League.


"'A revealing and amusing book... although he writes as an agnostic, he returns again and again to Christianity.' Church Times 'Part of the book's charm is its unpredictability. You can never be sure what is waiting for you as you turn the page... a beguiling melange of anecdote and consideration... we can be grateful for Richard Hoggart's unemphatic words.' Times Literary Supplement '...modest and engaging.' Blake Morrison - The Guardian"
