This memoir tells the story of the author's experiences with and in academia, describing a life-long professional career in education and academics. Now professor emeritus at the University of Washington's department of comparative literature, it's little surprise that the author grew up as the child of academically-minded parents, both teachers at Cleveland's Hawken School. Fittingly, the memoir begins here, telling of his family's experiences at Hawken before following through to the author's education at Seattle's Lakeside School and later the United States Marine Corps, Princeton, and the University of Washington.The author also comments on his experiences researching and teaching in Ireland, his administrative work in the founding faculty at the University of California's Irvine campus, and finally his experiences under the first endowed professorship in the humanities at the University of Washington. Reaching beyond the author's formal academic career as student and teacher, the memoir also voyages into memories of family, teachers, acquaintances, and anecdotes, occasionally interrupted with critical comments on the current state of higher education and the academic experience.
