Green and Pleasant Land

(1991)
A novel by

 
 
England in the 1920s - and the disillusioned and damaged generation who survived or were born into the brutality of a war of unprecedented scope and horror, and who still live in its shadow are - consciously or unconsciously - putting into practice the lessons that experience has taught them. In their disrupted and destabilised post-war society there are no comfortable certainties, no immutable rules: there are winners and there are losers. The social upheaval that has inevitably followed in the wake of the carnage has bewildered many: but to others it offers opportunity and freedom - in many cases too much and too dangerous a freedom. While for those who had hoped that evil had been crushed the spectres of Depression, unemployment, the Red Revolution and the creeping growth of Fascism are there to whisper future threats. So it is hardly any wonder that the temptation to live now and count costs later - to grasp at the bubble of pleasure and self-interest - to some will prove all but irresistible...?
Following on from 'Tomorrow, Jerusalem', here is the story of those that survived, that came through the horrors of war apparently lucky, apparently whole but in many cases far from unscathed.
