The Gatekeeper: A Memoir PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Gatekeeper: A Memoir free pdf Often scathingly funny, frequently tender, and always completely engaging, "The Gatekeeper" is Terry Eagleton's memoirs, his deep-etched portraits of those who influenced him, either by example or by contrast: his father, headmasters, priests, and Cambridge dons. He was a shy, bookish, asthmatic boy keenly aware of social inferiority yet determined to make his intellectual way. "The Gatekeeper" mixes the soberly serious with the downright hilarious, skewer-sharp satire with unashamed fondness, the personal with the political. Most of it all it reveals a young man learning to reconcile oppositions: a double-edged portrait of the intellectual as a young man.
