Recently, Robert and Yewande visited my office to record an interview with me and review materials in my animal rights collection for the project.The Oxford Group is the name given to an informal group of young academics who lived in Oxford in the 1970s who became vegetarians and explored animal ethics.

  • Howards End is on the Landing by Susan Hill

    December 29, 2017

    Essentially, a collection of short pieces about the books in the author’s life. Books that Susan Hill has read and written, and published, along with authors and others she has met–all these and more are discussed. She recalls when she read them and what meaning they gave her. As would be expected, she writes about authors I love (Virginia Woolf), some I have never heard of (F M Mayor), and some I’ve heard of and want to read but have yet to do so (V S Naipaul).… Read More
