On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, an incident takes place in a North London park. Chris is accidentally bitten by an excited dog, and aims a defensive kick at it. The owner, well-known polemicist Ivan Grubb, takes to his blog to express his outrage, spinning the story to sit happily within his own narrative. When Ivan and Chris relate the event to their children, they are surprised and confused by the strength of feeling their reactions have provoked. The Park is a delicate examination of how anger, repression and powerlessness can overwhelm even the most logical and well-intentioned person in a confusing modern world.

Oscar Zarate is a prize-winning author and illustrator of graphic novels. His work includes A Small Killing (with Alan Moore), Geoffrey the Tube Train and the Fat Comedian (with Alexei Sayle), and an adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus. He worked with Carlos Sampayo on Trois Artistes a Paris, Fly Blues and La Faille. He is also the editor of It's Dark In London (SelfMadeHero), an anthology of short stories featuring work by Alan Moore, Iain Sinclair, Neil Gaiman and others. Oscar Zarate left Buenos Aires and decided to visit London as a tourist. After forty years, he is still here.
