Publisher Description

'Rose Tremain does not disappoint. As always her writing has a delicious, crunchy precision.' Observer

A wise and witty look at the contemporary migrant experience.

Lev is on his way from Eastern Europe to Britain, seeking work. Behind him loom the figures of his dead wife, his beloved young daughter and his outrageous friend Rudi who - dreaming of the wealthy West - lives largely for his battered Chevrolet. Ahead of Lev lies the deep strangeness of the British: their hostile streets, their clannish pubs, their obsession with celebrity. London holds out the alluring possibility of friendship, sex, money and a new career and, if Lev is lucky, a new sense of belonging...

'A novel of urgent humanity' Sunday Telegraph

Excellent

Just didn't want it to end. Entertaining ramble through Lev"s experiences in England as an immigrant. Not too deep yet moving at the same time. An enjoyable read.
