    A wonderfully amusing and engaging account of the escapades of a naive student thrown into university life amongst the hallowed halls of Oxford c. 1850. Widely regarded as a comic masterpiece of its time (it sold over 200,000 copies) it brings to mind the writing of Jerome K Jerome or an adventure PG Woodhouse might have penned for a slightly more academic Bertie Wooster. Cuthbert Bede, B.A. is the nom de plume of the Rev. Edward Bradley.

    In this second adventure, our hero learns more useful lessons at Oxford and experiences the first disconcerting flutters of his heartstrings. A joyous alternative to the satirical university novel. Philip Bird, narrator, numbers Charles Dickens and PG Wodehouse among his favourite writers and has found Mr Verdant Green to be a very agreeable mixture of the two. Cuthbert Bede, B.A. is the nom de plume of the Rev. Edward Bradley.
