Oxfam has teamed up 38 of the UK’s top authors to produce 4 exciting new books. The books contain original short stories around the themes of Earth, Fire, Air and Water. This venture is in support of Oxfam’s projects fighting poverty and suffering around the world. The books features contributions by authors such as Esther Freud, David Park, Zoë Heller, Alexander McCall Smith, Helen Simpson, DBC Pierre, William Sutcliffe, Ali Smith, Lionel Shriver, Jeanette Winterson, Marina Lewycka, Ian Rankin and Nicholas Shakespeare.

The themes of the collections are intended to represent four aspects of Oxfam’s work: Earth (land right and farming), Air (combating climate change), Fire (compaigning for arms control) and Water (safe water and sanitation).
