MEDIA REVIEWS
...a real human record of a genuine and living librarian who also loves books and writers. * Alan Sillitoe *
So sharp is Gerard's eye, such Gerard's thrusts, that I wanted him to write more. Any librarian who reads him must go away with his ears buzzing and his brain in top gear. -- Stanley Middleton, Novelist, winner of Booker Prize
Gerard's reminiscences offer both remarkable frankness and a sense of what it actually felt like to be a public librarian in Britain. * Lisca *
...a must for those who are interested in librarianship in Great Britain * Information & Culture *
I don't know of any other who has written so searchingly of his motives in becoming and being a librarian; and then, once the top was reached, of leaving practice for preaching...beautifully written... * The Library Quarterly *
