Although all the stories in this collection have a basis in reality, they take the reader into an imagined Oxford. An old portrait seems to smile at an American tourist, a summer’s punting trip has unexpected consequences and gargoyles come to life. More prosaically there are problems in a tattoo studio and with parking in the Westgate multi-storey car park.
Each story concludes with some background on the real life places and events on which it is based.
Oxford is a magical place which every resident knows and as
visitors soon discover. It has inspired scholars and writers for centuries and spawned politicians, scientists and a good few eccentrics. As this entertaining collection shows, every corner is bursting with humour, mystery and romance.
