"A Local Habitation" and "A Sort of Clowning" traced Richard Hoggart's life to 1959. In this final part of his autobiography, he recalls the changes in his life which followed the publication of his "Uses of Literacy", his pronouncement to a shocked court during the Lady Chatterley trial that Lawrence was "puritanical", his involvement with the Pilkington report on broadcasting and UNESCO, and his rewarding time as Warden of Goldsmith's College, London (during which time he engaged in broadcasting, film, print, adult education, and battles against censorship of the arts). Famous names move across the pages - T.S. Eliot, E.M. Forster, W.H. Auden - and Hoggart's career traces and assesses a changing world. But it is to his private life, and to his childhood, that this trilogy returns for its conclusion. This book should be of interest to readers of contemporary English autobiography, and those who enjoyed Hoggart's other works.
