    I liked this I think it is a stronger story and interestingly written structured than the History of Tractors book read in Spain 2006 but that's a complete aside Sure this is whimisical with migrant workers picking strawberries in Kent living in caravans but there's a dark undercurrent to the tale Exploitation poor working conditions Eastern Euro cultures struggling to part from the communist past but taking with them the worst

Assion social outrage and gift for hilarity that she showed in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian Marina Lewycka chronicles their bumpy road trip with a tender affection for her downtrodden characters and their search for a taste of the good life. This book ticked a lot of boxes for me I loved itIt s not the easiest read owing to the mix of third person and first person points of view one of the first person POVs is that of a dog first canine perhapsBut it s certainly worth sticking to it because it allows the reader to get inside a number of heads and find out what makes them tick and see the world through their eyes through the filter of their knowledgeThis books plumbs the depths and goes to some suallid places that can make us feel ashamed to be part of the human raceBut it also has some splendid comic momentsTo my mind that s what makes a great writer the ability to go from light to dark again and back to light again There s no black no white just lots of shades of interesting greyI also like that this book was written to no formula that I know It s original A breath of fresh air Electing Judges us feel ashamed to be part of the human raceBut it also has some splendid comic momentsTo my mind that s what makes a great writer the ability to go from light to dark again and back to light again There s no black no white just lots of shades of interesting greyI also like that this book was written to no formula that I know It s original A breath of fresh air

Also published as Strawberry FieldsThe bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is back with an effervescent comedy The New Yorker The follow up to her hugely popular first novel presents a Canterbury Tales inspired picaresue that. I think Lewycka is incredible she manages to write a novel about illegal immigrants prostitution exploitation battery farming chickens and make it funny without ever diminishing the horror in fact it s because it s fun that we don t turn away or stop reading because it s unbearable I thought the characters were wonderful and varied and the scenes likely to win people over than a mass of outraged journalism or cold statistics And the characters just go on living the humour doesn t allow us to see them as victims even though we can feel sorry for them BrilliantI would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed White Teeth
