About the Author:

E. R. Braithwaite was born 1920 in British Guiana and educated in British Guiana and the United States. He served in the R. A. F. His publications include To Sir with Love: Experiences While Teaching in a London School (1959); Paid Servant: A Report about Welfare Work in London (1962); A Kind of Home-Coming: A Visit to Africa (1963); A Choice of Straws (1965).

Review:

"A book that the reader devours quickly, ponders slowly, and forgets not at all-Moving and inspiring" * New York Times * "E.R. Braithwaite's postwar novel about a black teacher fighting to win the respect of white pupils in a school in the East End of London is a milestone in the campaign for racial equality" * Guardian * "It is the noblest, most moving, least sentimental account of life in a modern school and of a teacher's struggles with his pupils and with himself that I have come across" -- Michael Croft * Observer *

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CARYL PHILLIPS In 1945, Rick Braithwaite, a smart, highly educated ex-RAF pilot, looks for a job in British engineering.
