A new novel from one of Britain's best-loved writer, Brian Aldiss OBE, set in and around his home-town of Oxford. Set in contemporary Oxford, this incisive novel charts the breakdown of a community. A new mosque is to be built - on the site of a derelict pub - and gradually, half-hidden prejudices begin to surface, and relationships between the residents start to sour. Drawing closely on current affairs, this novel investigates what it means to live in a post 7/7 world, where paranoia, prejudice and fear compete with tolerance and diversity.
