9780143113553: Strawberry Fields

The bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is back with an “effervescent comedy” (The New Yorker)

The follow up to her hugely popular first novel presents a Canterbury Tales–inspired picaresque that is also a biting satire of economic exploitation. When a ragtag international crew of migrant workers is forced to flee the strawberry fields they have been working in, they set off across England looking for employment. Displaying the same sense of compassion, social outrage, and gift for hilarity that she showed in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, Marina Lewycka chronicles their bumpy road trip with a tender affection for her downtrodden characters and their search for a taste of the good life.

Review:

Her last book was entertaining, but this one is better…Very buoyant, witty and informative (Peter Kemp The Sunday Times )

A great romp…with considerable heart and winsomeness ( Literary Review )

Another black comedy masterpiece…an extraordinary, surprisingly funny tale ( Easy Living )

Lewycka's heartfelt and funny novel packs as big a punch as any hard-hitting political polemic ( Daily Mail )

Another winner from the author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian ( Woman and Home )

Marina Lewycka has pulled off another story with a big heart ( Daily Express )

An extremely funny book ( Times Literary Supplement )
