Wain was born and grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, the son of a dentist, Arnold Wain, and his wife Annie, née Turner. He had an older sister and a younger brother, Noel. After attending Newcastle under Lyme High School, he entered St. John's College, Oxford, gaining a first in his BA in 1946 and MA in 1950. He was a Fereday Fellow of St John's between 1946 and 1949.[1] On 4 July 1947, Wain married Marianne Uffenheimer (b. 1923 or 1924), but they divorced in 1956. Wain then married Eirian Mary James (1920–1988), deputy director of the recorded sound department of the British Council, on 1 January 1960. They had three sons and lived mainly in Wolvercote, Oxford. Wain married his third wife, Patricia Adams (born 1942 or 1943), an art teacher, in 1989. Wain taught at the University of Reading during the late 1940s and early 1950s, and in 1963 spent a term as professor of rhetoric at Gresham College, London. He was the first fellow in creative arts at Brasenose College, Oxford (1971–1972), and was appointed a supernumerary fellow in 1973. In that same year, he was elected to the five-year post of Professor of Poetry at the University of Oxford: some of his lectures are collected in his book Professing Poetry. Wain was appointed a CBE in 1984. He was made an honorary fellow of his old college, St John's, Oxford, in 1985. He died inOxford on 24 May 1994.

A good story about what happens when an individual doesn't follow the unspoken dictates of society, but John, why would you give your protagonist the last name Geary and then refer to him by that the entire book? Surely you knew the similarity to the first name Gary would grate on the reader?

Humoristický román o muži, který se po ukončení vysoké školy rozhodne hledat své místo v životě a ve společnosti jinak, než odpovídá zažitým způsobům. Při tom se setkává s lidmi různých sociálních skupin a zažívá mnohdy nelehké, leč ve své podstatě komické, situace. (Založil/a: Jezinka)

This book is vital for anyone studying the cultural environment of postwar Britain and the rise of a generation of writers, filmmakers, and critics once termed as Angry Young Men. In fact, as their later careers proved, it was a disparate group of people with varied responses to the specific political and cultural situation they found in the United Kingdom in the years immediately after the Second World War and on into the 1950s. Chapters include contributions from: Colin Wilson, John Osborne, John Wain, Kenneth Tynan, Bill Hopkins, Lindsay Anderson, Stuart Holroyd and, at least one decidedly much calmer woman, Doris Lessing.… (mais)
