Peter George, charismatic academic, idealist, lover of life, is dead. His three wives - and his daughter - come together to arrange his funeral. So begins a fascinating retrospective on George's life. As the true nature of the man unfolds, so these women discover more than they bargained for about the lives they have lived both in and out of his shadow.
Life After George offers a moving and perceptive insight into social change across three decades. From the student barricades of the late 1960s to the new millennium, the role of the university has been crucial. And it is on this stage that the politically uncompromising George played out his brilliant, tempestuous career.
