The Boswells Connection
stories linked to Oxford's oldest store
edited by Andrew Bax
For generations of Oxford’s residents, students and visitors, Boswells has been part of the city’s charm. It was therefore an obvious subject for Oxford Inc, a group of writers who compile stories around a common theme. All sorts of people pass through the department store: they may look just like the rest of us but, underneath the surface, the authors reveal private lives with twists, joy and despair, all of which make for an entertaining read. There are stories here to make you laugh, some will make you cry and others will make you think; together they present a collection which is as varied and delightful as Boswells, the famous old store which links them all.
