If you've ever lusted after an Oxford education, here it is. Diane Quinnell's irresistible summer voyage leaps into the confluence of two monolithic educational philosophies: Smith College, largest of America's mighty Seven Sisters where Quinnell earned her art degree, and venerable Oxford, hot-wired and vital with its formidable tribe of intellectual warriors. It is 1996 and Salman Rushdie materializes there too, braving the fatwa that threatens his life. And there is romance of the cerebral kind, as well as Bollywood musicals, a swami with a wicked sense of humor, and art, learning and debating, men and women, twilight in the garden, more art - and a spectacular theft, whose discovery and recovery are all orchestrated by Quinnell, who is more of a huntress than she lets on. Written by artist/actor/educator RD McHattie as a new 'part coming of age, part mystery' adventure for the lead character from her first novel: Returning to Denver. "Oxford Vindaloo is a charming collision between old world and new, east and west, technology and tradition, vaudeville and academia, age and youth, eccentricity and desperate normalcy. It's also my favorite recipe for curried shoes." -Howard Jay Patterson, M.E.M. (a.k.a. Ivan Fyodorovich Karamazov, C.P.K.) founder emeritus of The Flying Karamazov Brothers "You don't read this book, you pull it on like Athena's helmet, as it grabs you by the collar for a flying trip through Oxford." -David Hannula, Omlet, Prynce of Fynnland, playwright
