Summary

"A catch-in-the-throat story . . . Perfectly done." — The New Yorker

In this warmly nostalgic novel, Arthur Chipping — better known as Mr. Chips — arrives at Brookfield School in 1880 with a conventional attitude and an inclination toward firm discipline. But while he's teaching his students, he's learning from them as well. Generations of English schoolboys come of age under Mr. Chips' tutelage, and the schoolmaster matures alongside them into a respected and beloved father figure.
James Hilton, author of Lost Horizon and many other popular novels, based Mr. Chips in part on his schoolmaster father and in part on one of his own teachers. His wise and dignified educator has inspired numerous stage and screen adaptations, and his book remains an enchanting story of a bygone world and its enduring values.

"A masterpiece." — New York Herald Tribune
