OxTravels is a very simple idea. We asked the best travel writers based in Britain – and a few further afield – for a story loosely based around a meeting. There were no rules except that the story should be true and the meeting real. The authors were asked to donate their stories for free, in order to raise funds for Oxfam. The response was extraordinary: thirty-six compelling stories, introduced by Michael Palin, and featuring a stellar line-up of contributors, including Rory Stewart, Colin Thubron, William Dalrymple, Sara Wheeler, Dervla Murphy, Chris Stewart, Aminatta Forna and Patrick Leigh Fermor. Together they transport readers into a brilliant, vivid atlas of encounters.
OxTravels was published to critical acclaim in June by Profile Books and is now available from Henry Sotheran in a
special signed limited fine edition. Profits go to Oxfam’s work overcoming poverty and suffering.
