The Dean of St Andrew's College oversees an ancient institution (Est. 1561) renowned for its academic oddity, inter-departmental warfare and explosive disasters.The Dean s observations and anecdotes provide an exceptionally witty account of academia in Edinburgh, seamlessly combining the douce realities of Scotland's capital with the decidedly bizarre goings-on at St Andrew's.

The population of Scotland remains rightly proud of St Andrew s College, seeing in its fierce political incorrectness and general eccentricity, a shield against the creeping gloom of the Endarkenment. 
Rt Hon. Lord Fanshawe FRS

The Dean s Diaries follow the activities, on and off campus, of the Dean, his Dons and Fellows through the Academic Year. They also correct egregious errors in the press coverage of both the Giant Squid incident and the Antimatter explosion.

About the Author:

David Purdie was born in Prestwick and educated publicly at Ayr Academy and Glasgow University. Now a disused medical academic, he devotes what time is left to writing, lecturing and broadcasting. David is Editor-in-Chief of The Burns Encyclopaedia which deals with the life and work of the poet Robert Burns and is Chairman of the Sir Walter Scott Club of Edinburgh. He is in considerable demand as an after-dinner speaker, described in this role by the Daily Telegraph as 'probably our best of the moment.' He now lives in Edinburgh.

Review:

David Purdie is arguably our best after-dinner speaker of the moment. - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
