"Theodore Dalrymple" is a wonderful throwback to the Stalky era. He has just come out with what promises to be an indispensibly entertaining philippic against British lad culture, Our Culture, What's Left of It : The Mandarins and the Masses. I simply must have this, and I will put it on reserve once it arrives and I finish reading it -- i.e. one day after I receive it!
[This book brings to mind a Kris Kristofferson song: "Blame it on the Rolling Stones."]
