About the Author
Stephen Grant is a British philosopher, educator, and trade unionist. From 2010 to 2012, in his capacity as an elected representative of the University and Colleges Union at Richmond upon Thames College in London, he was one of the leaders in a labor dispute to prevent up to a quarter of the lecturing staff losing their jobs. A Moment More Sublime, his debut novel, was partly inspired by events from that period.

One thing to be commended in Grant's writing is that there is absolutely no doubt the level of passion that Grant brings to the story. He is angry--rightfully so--and there is no doubt where the author's sympathies lie in the eternal conflict between teachers and administrators. He is on the side of the just.
