I swear blind that I’ve actually blogged this photo before, but I can’t find it, and either way it’ll make much more sense now that people are actually starting to read the book.
Two thirds of the way through, the protagonist and his best friend are chased by The Idiots as they make their way home. Now even though they live on a fictional housing estate on the outskirts of Oxford it is based upon somewhere that my sister used to live. So when it came to writing them being chased through it I went and walked the streets, took photos, made some notes, and then used google earth to fill in some of the gaps.
Oh, and for those of you that have read it; click on the photo to see notes as to where some of the key points of the chase happen.
