9781596920538: Speak for England

Brian Marley, winner of Britain’s ultimate reality TV show, survives a helicopter crash only to find himself in the midst of a jungle-island village founded by survivors of another plane crash—one that took place in 1958. With rescue imminent, Brian discovers that the seemingly idyllic community—modeled after pre-Sixties England and overseen by a stern Headmaster—is founded on a far more sinister premise. Satirical and insightful, Speak for England is a story of the clash between English cultures separated by fifty years of history.

The Observer called James Hawes 'the funniest British novelist writing today'. Speak for England proves it, over and over again.

From the Publisher:

"We have the British to thank for the TV reality show, so it’s only fitting that they can do a brilliant parody of the bloody thing as well...We Yanks will find it great fun." – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"This creative American debut novel combines the TV shows Survivor and Lost with the novel Lord of the Flies...a harsh satirical look at both the age of reality TV and the dangers of romanticizing the past." – Booklist

'You never want to stop turning the pages... each page is funny, sophisticated and soul-wrenchingly accurate' –Scotland on Sunday
