The Lost College and other Oxford Stories
The Sixpenny Debt, the first anthology produced by these talented writers, was so good that I doubted that a second would be able to achieve the same standard, but The Lost College is just as satisfying. It is very pleasing to find a collection of short stories covering such a variety of themes, each one excellent in its own right. I loved them all. Who could resist a story entitled Rabbit Fenley and the Body in the Garden?
The plot is as intriguing as you might expect. I was moved by Aftermath and the poignant Through a Glass, Darkly, which left me wanting more. And I was delighted by A Little Persistence which worked out exactly the way I wanted it to.
I have just begun to read the third book in the series, The Bodleian Murders and I am enjoying every word.
Well done, Oxford writers, give us more.
