By his own admission a naïve and emotionally immature young man, the author found himself being accepted at Trinity College, Oxford, to study history. This became his home for the next three years.
His diary provides an intriguing account of the day-to-day life of a student who undertakes several roles within the college community, often to the detriment of his studying. In fact he admits it was hard to find time do any studying at all sometimes when he was acting as food representative, taking complaints to the chef; and also working on the college newspaper, the Cherwell, and associated publications. He even acted as a stand-in cox in a rowing team, among other things. This all takes place between 1977 and 1980, a period when university attendance was the exception rather than the rule.
The rigours of halls of residence and student digs, tutorials and launderettes, all play a part, and the reader will wonder how he ever found time to write this diary.
