List Oxford: Books

The Wind in the Willows

The following list is not comprehensive by any means. Which ones have you read? Which ones have I missed out?

I think my favourite Oxford-based book is The Wind in the Willows, which I used to devour over and over again as a child. I had no idea Kenneth Grahame was buried here until I wrote this post. See? Even if you live and work in publishing in Oxford, you still learn about new literary tales each day!
