England just a suburb of Milton Keynes,
This review is from: Real England: The Battle Against the Bland (Paperback)
I have been aware of Paul Kingsnorth's presence for sometime, occasionally reading his blog. I thought he really shone as a columnist, presenting the reader with small ideas to digest. I was unsure if he could keep up his enthusiasm throughout a whole book. I am glad to say that he certainly can.
We might be getting nostalgic about an England of yesteryear but as Paul states it is still around us we just have to look. In saying that we have to do more than look and actively stop shopping at some of the biggest shops and online sources. We are in danger of having one big shop that sells everything and being a nation of shoppers rather than shop keepers.
Read this book and don't let England become just a suburb of Milton Keynes.
