Summary
In 2009, while swimming down the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, Bill Johnson lost his left leg and very nearly his life. While recovering from this accident he began to write this insider's memoir of the Oxford he knew. The result is a wildly entertaining mixture of acute, and often hilarious, personal observation mixed with history, some major revelations and innumerable anecdotes, both humorous and telling. The result is an unparalleled picture of postwar Oxford
