Tory Heaven
MARGHANITA LASKI
A 1949 novel which some will find too political and others both funny and disturbing. Five people return to England after the war; they discover that everyone has been divided into five categories, A-E, and has to ‘stick to one class.That’s the law. If we don’t, we’re liable to get degraded.’ Tory Heaven had a clear political agenda which, sadly, is still relevant today.There was a time when we thought a book like this pure satire. Now we are not so sure.
1999–2018
