Oxford: One City, Many Voices

Oxford: One City, Many Voices brings together an eclectic group of writers who all share the experience of living in Oxford. In this community-based, locally-sponsored project, both professional authors and amateur writers from Oxford’s homeless community have contributed their stories and memories. Each is different, some are shocking, but all give a personal perspective on life in a city which never fails to create a lasting impression on those who live here.

With an introduction by John Bird, founder of The Big Issue, contributions from Sister Gabriel Benedict, Melvyn Bragg, Humphrey Carpenter, Colin Dexter, A. C. Grayling, Janie Hampton, Mark Haddon, Ann McPherson, Bernard O’Donoghue, Tim Pears, Philip Pullman, Francine Stock, D. J. Taylor, Priscilla Tolkien and Barbara Trapido, and the unique writings from those considered to be on the fringes of society this is a truly diverse collection.
