Journal Entry 1 by Miss-R from Lingfield, Surrey United Kingdom on Friday, January 18, 2008
A brilliant book about race relations in post war London. Gilbert (a Jamaican immigrant) and his wife Hortense, begin a new life in England, a country they have always thought of as home. The reality is quite different.
This is an insightful read on the nature of prejudice and immigration. The scary thing (to me, anyway), is that, even 60 years on, replace the Jamaican characters with Muslims and it could be based in the present day, in some areas.
This is to be released as a small bookray, as there wasn't too many people interested in it, which is a shame as it is well worth a read. It will be visiting the following people:

Moonwoof (Portugal, international)
Tuttasb (Norway, international)
msjoanna (US/Canada only)

Finally it has arrived.
I will try not to take to long with it, but it is really big, and i'm finishing a book... I don't know if i can read it in a month. will see...
Thanks a lot for the postal card, i enjoy it a lot. See ya.

21-04-2008= A great read. I like it very much. In nowadays, racism is still a theme that is very actual, although people try to avoid to say that really exists in the called Develop Countries... But i think someday that will definitally change...
