To Porterhouse College, Cambridge, famous for rowing, low academic standards. and a proud cuisine, comes a new Master, an ex-grammar-school boy, demanding Firsts, women students, a self-service canteen, and a slot-machine for contraceptives. There is considerable opposition to this challenge to the established order, in the form of Skullion, the intransigent porter at Porterhouse, who is determined that the hallowed traditions of the College will never change.

    " A newly appointed college Master struggles to impose changes on a stubbornly traditional Cambridge college. The story twists and turns with traps and intrigues. If you have visited Cambridge, you can just picture the colleges and other venues and the story becomes even more alive (which is not a must, but definitely a bonus). Very witty. "

    " Somewhat dated now, and the subject matter is more for upper class readers, but very funny and a good read. "

    " I found this book at a yard sale or used book store years ago, had never even heard of the author. If you're and Oxford Grad, an Englishman or Anglophile (Gabe, I'm looking at you...), then you'll probably enjoy this book. I am none of these, but I found this hilarious. It basically chronicles the pettiness, in-fighting, and less then stellar academic standards of one of the lesser universities in Cambridge. Very British, and perhaps a bit dated (i think it was published in the early '70's), but I was laughing out loud the whole time. Any books that manages to use a case of frozen prophylactics as a major plot point can't be all bad! "
