The Bunny Run

A short drive... with some diversions

by

“It was something I had quietly enjoyed, shared secrets with, visited regularly, always been happy to share my thoughts with in good times and bad. It was so well known to me, it would never let me down. I had fallen in love with a road.”

With offices in both towns, Tim Topps has, for many years, driven twice-weekly between Cambridge and Oxford and knows the road like the back of his (gloved) hand – but now, amid all his memories, things are changing – including his 20-year marriage, which has come to an abrupt end.

Tim takes you in his beloved old Sunbeam Talbot – two-tone, as the best ones were – along familiar routes, while frequently turning aside to disclose all manner of revelations, ranging from a schoolboy’s theft in Kenya on Armistice Day 1936, and a cavalry recruit’s first day on parade (first broadcast twice on the BBC), to an old lady’s possible affair with a really horrid dictator, and a very feasible belief that ghosts come from the future, all dressed up for a visit to the past. The drive (and the read) pass smoothly, but when Tim reaches his destination, things change dramatically...

His reminiscences end, and his problems rapidly unfold as he parks in Oxford. Tim’s adventures mirror the format of a monologue as he confides in the reader and compels you to read more. The Bunny Run will appeal to fans of light-hearted fiction.
