    All in a Don's Day is a collection of blog posts written by Cambridge Classics professor Mary Beard between 2009 and 2011 so if you follow Professor Beard's blog there's nothing new here While it's possibly not a book to read from cover to cover then it's nice to dip in and out of—Beard's posts cover in a pithy manner everything from the red tape and frustrations of academia to the parallels between ancient Roman and modern British politics There are some posts of hers with which I agree some which make me think and others with which I vehemently disagree the access todiversity of an Oxbridge education for instance or online pseudonyms but all make for interesting reading

    Perhaps this makes me yearn for an England I thought had disappeared or the acceptance of an academic world as the norm? Beard is not an academic in my own subject matter but I hang on her every word and am flying into the UK just to got to some lectures by her This may be an acuired taste but it's my acuired taste
