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 threatens to supersede it...One of Barnes's finest and funniest novels, 'England, England' calls into question the idea of replicas, truth vs fiction, reality vs art, nationhood, myth-making, and self-exploration.

He has also skilfully dissected the discomforting ways in which we have all grown to accept, and even depend on, illusion" Wall Street Journal "Few writers think and talk so beguiling" -- Zoe Heller Independent on Sunday
