Books Info:

All in a Don's Day free pdf Her central themes are the classics, universities and teaching - and much else besides. In this second collection following on from the success of It's a Don's Life, Beard ponders whether Gaddafi's home is Roman or not, we share her 'terror of humiliation' as she enters 'hairdresser country' and follow her dilemma as she wanders through the quandary of illegible handwriting on examination papers and 'longing for the next dyslexic' - on whose paper the answers are typed, not handwritten. Praise for It's a Don's Life 'Delightful...it has the virtues of brevity, eclecticism and learning worn lightly...if they'd had Mary Beard on their side back then, the Romans would still have their empire' Daily Mail
