“Raymond’s novel is rooted firmly in the dystopian vision of Orwell and Huxley, sharing their air of horrifying hopelessness.”—Sunday Times

It is the 1960s. England has become a dictatorship, governed by a sly, ruthless politician called Jobling. All non-whites have been deported, The English Times is the only newspaper, and ordinary people live in dread of nightly curfews and secret police. Derek Raymond’s skill is to make all too plausible the transition from complacent democracy to dictatorship in a country preoccupied by consumerism and susceptible to media spin.

About the Author:

Derek Raymond was born Robin Cook in 1931. The son of a textile magnate, he dropped out of public school aged sixteen and spent much of his early career among criminals. The Factory series followed his early novels, The Crust on Its Uppers and A State of Denmark. He died in London in 1994.

Review:

?Raymond?s novel is rooted firmly in the dystopian vision of Orwell and Huxley, sharing their air of horrifying hopelessness? Sunday Times ?A State of Denmark is carried out with surgical precision... a fascinating and important novel by one of our best writers in or outside of any genre? Time Out ?Alternative science fiction on the scale of Orwell?s 1984? Q
