England, England

What would happen if a tycoon decided to turn England into a theme park? Before anyone could say "Windsor Castle," replicas of all of the kingdom's great landmarks from the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey to the National Gallery and everything in between all turn up in one place. And what if credit-worthy tourists could escape to this island that permits vast expense accounts and prohibits paparazzi? This hilarious notion is the premise of acclaimed novelist Julian Barnes's (Flaubert's parrot) simultaneously funny and moving comic romp, England, England. The Sunday times (London) raved: "There is no more intelligent writer on the literary scene," and this witty, wistful, thoroughly wonderful book is ample proof.
