Larkin, work and libraries


Table of Contents

Philip Larkin on being a librarian ….

“I hate work. Libraries are a quite pleasant way of earning a living. Dismal prospects though! Jobs connected with books like publishing are not good for creative writing. That’s why libraries, all technical and administration, are so good.” [Larkin’s first interview John Shakespeare TLS]

I have written about Larkin and libraries before.
