    Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. As every schoolboy knows, you can fit the whole of England on the Isle of White. Grotesque, visionary tycoon Sir Jack Pitman takes the saying literally and does exactly that. He constructs on the island 'The Project', a vast heritage centre containing everything 'English', from Big Ben to Stonehenge, from Manchester United to the white cliffs of Dover. The project is monstrous, risky, and vastly successful. In fact, it gradually begins to rival 'Old' England and even ... Show more

DISNEYLAND ACROSS THE POND

by GERBAM on Jul 2, 2007

Julian Barnes is a writer with great virtuosity, which he displays in ENGLAND, ENGLAND about greedy business interests who want to transform England into a dystopian, fantasmagorical Disneyland-like theme park. But what the population doesn't know is that the 'theme park' is a fantasy designed for tourists to be able 'to do' the country in a week-end albeit on the Isle of Wight. Barnes seess his country and the rest of the world with unchecked cynicism. His concerns focus upon what he sees as a world full of charlatans and shysters, a disenchanted populace who walk through each day in a fugue state. ENGLAND, ENGLAND is a cautionary tale mixed with the elements of a listing moral aesthetic. This book is a meditation on a future that Barnes sees in jeopardy ... his remedy is that people must keep asking questions of the powerful people and institutions who make the rules. An excelllent read.
