Conversations, With Clocks
The tides of change are lapping at the doors of the college, forcing decisions and bringing personalities into conflict - yet whose decisions? And which personalities will prevail?
Parslow, the headmaster, is all for change. Can he ease others out, including a long-serving deputy? And can Doug Anderson, young and idealistic, retain his zest for teaching amidst challenges to his job and even to his marriage?
For the discerning reader, Conversations, with Clocks is a shrewd, sure-footed yet sympathetic exposition of professional politics, the personalities that drive them and the consequences that flow.
