Review:

"A powerful and mysterious novel - totally gripping" (J.G. Ballard)

"A horrified and darkly comic response to the appeal of totalitarianism, a mixture of Orwellian satire, rural sentimentality and Kafkaesque nightmare..." ( Guardian)

"Intensely original...humour and irony, and the smell of the English earth...Its value as literature becomes increasingly apparent at each re-reading" (Anthony Burgess)

" The Aerodrome has been called the best novel ever written about fascism...captures so well the sinister glamour...as unsettling today as when it appeared more than sixty years ago" ( New Statesman)

"The only outstanding novelist of ideas whom the decade of ideas has produced is Rex Warner" (V.S. Pritchett)

Book Description:

'A haunting political allegory...a cracking beach read' The Times
