Carey Harrison's backpiece tattoo is a passage of German philosophy, in the original German. It is the opening section, "Fuer Marcel Proust" ("for Marcel Proust"), of Theodor Adorno's philosophical journal, Minima Moralia, Harrison's favorite book. He has written close to 200 plays for television, radio, the screen and the stage, and 16 novels. He feels fortunate to spend so much of his year with Brooklyn College students, the most enjoyable company of any student body he has encountered, in a teaching career that spans seven universities in the United States and his native United Kingdom. Further details may be found on his website,, and at his Wikipedia site, very kindly and efficiently put together by a Brooklyn College graduate.
