Inhaltsangabe: This is the second of the ‘A Staircase in Surrey’ quintet, and the first in chronological order. Duncan Pattullo arrives in Oxford, destined to be housed off the quadrangle his father has chosen simply for its architectural and visual appeal. On the staircase in Surrey, Duncan meets those who are to become his new friends and companions, and there occurs all of the usual student antics and digressions, described by Stewart with his characteristic wit, to amuse and enthral the reader. After a punting accident, however, the girl who is in love with Duncan suffers as a result of his self-sacrificing actions. His cousin, Anna, is also involved in an affair, but she withholds the name of her lover, despite being pregnant. This particular twist reaches an ironical conclusion towards the end of the novel, in another of Stewart’s favourite locations; Italy. Indeed, Young Pattullo covers all of the writer’s favourite subjects and places; the arts, learning, mystery and intrigue, whilst ranging from his much loved Oxford, through Scotland and the inevitable Italian venue. This second volume of the acclaimed series can be read in order, or as a standalone novel.
About the Author: John Innes Mackintosh Stewart was born in Edinburgh in 1906 and attended Edinburgh Academy before going up to Oriel College, Oxford. By 1935, he had been awarded the jury chair at the University of Adelaide in Australia as professor of English and had also completed his first detective novel, Death at the President’s Lodging, published under the pseudonym Michael Innes. This was an immediate success and part of a long-running series centered on Inspector Appleby, his primary character when writing as Innes. There were almost fifty titles under the Innes banner completed during his career. In 1946, Stewart returned to the UK and spent two years at Queen's University in Belfast, before being appointed Student (Fellow and Tutor) at Christ Church, Oxford. He was later to hold the post of Reader in English Literature of Oxford University and upon his retirement was made an emeritus professor.
