Combining laugh-out-load comedy with acerbic insight into Britain’s cultural, political and financial implosion. “A crazed, paranoiac, indignant, wildly funny and horribly accurate user's guide to New Britain and certain of its neighbours, especially those with volcanoes. I laughed out loud.” Jonathan Meades “How can I place it? It came to rest on my literary palate somewhere between the frenzy of Alexi Sayle (e.g. Barcelona Plates) with the more ‘sedate’ passages savouring of early Martin Amis (Dead Babies). [There is] a groove into which Someone Stole My Country neatly slid, among the good company of Zamiatin, Vonnegut et al not to mention Ballard and Dick.” James Gray

Alan James lives in Northumberland with his wife and daughter. Besides writing, he works around the world for a variety of Governments on economic development initiatives and for companies on commercial projects. He is a keen cyclist, and has also written the North Tyne Bike Ride: a detailed guide to Northumberland, England's biking paradise. He is fond of 'the killer Cs:' cheese, chocolate, chips, crisps and curry. The cycling is a belated attempt to fend off the inevitable physiological effects of the above.
