Oxford Messed Up, a novel.
Check out reviews on Amazon.
Hailed by critics, readers, and experts for its engaging story and sensitive portrayal of OCD, the novel was also honored with an Independent Publisher Book Award (“IPPY”) for Best Adult Fiction. Oxford Messed Up earned the Gold Medal and was ranked among the most “heartfelt, unique, outspoken and experimental” entries.
Who knew that life in one Oxford dorm, with a shared bathroom, would become the catalyst for self-examination and exploration not only of one’s soul, but ultimately of one’s soulmate? The lyrics of Van Morrison‘s music, the poetry of Sylvia Plath, and an old clawfoot bathtub provoke this unexpected journey where the exotic locale of Oxford University is an engaging backdrop for true learning as Gloria Zimmerman and Henry Young discover the loveliness in their own germs and each other.
