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.

Classic British farce and a glimpse in time.

This book is a classic British farce and full of beautiful language that illustrates the very essence of British bigotry and pomp. Be prepared for a roller coaster of humour alongside an avalanche of discomfort. The language and prejudice of the time is perfectly summarised in this book. Just as Skullion somehow loves and loathes his position in life, this book both celebrates condems and what it means to be British.
