The Student Chronicles is Alice Garner's vivid and entertaining memoir of her university years. Opening after a week of parties and press in Cannes for the film Love and Other Catastrophes, Alice looks back on the experiences and events which led her there. She tells the story of the share-house dramas, the entanglements and the debates which characterised her student years, and candidly describes the challenges of striking out alone. This is Alice Garner's coming-of-age story-playful, provocative and full of surprising discoveries.
