You have to go back to the 1980s and Granta's bestselling travel issue to find a book that compares to Ox-Travels. Introduced by Michael Palin, OxTravels features original stories from twenty-five top travel writers including Paul Theroux, Sara Wheeler, William Dalrymple, Patrick Leigh Fermor, Jan Morris, Dervla Murphy and others. Each of the stories takes as its theme a meeting - life changing, affecting, amusing by turn - and together they transport readers into a brilliant, vivid atlas of encounters.
