(4 stars; 1 reviews)

“How various is man! How multiplied his experience, his outlook, his conclusions!”—H. Belloc.

“And every single one of them is right.”—R. Kipling.
Written while Macaulay worked in the Propaganda Department of the War Office, and reflecting her own mysticism and skepticism of organized religion, The Making of a Bigot follows young Eddy Oliver from Cambridge University as he meets people whose stronger personalities influence his weaker one, with their persuasive arguments.

An Interesting Character Study

(4 stars)

The hero is truly an idealistic young man, and it takes many blows from life to make any dent in his beliefs. Despite the title, the ending is satisfying.
