Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Journalist Hazleton ( Where Mountains Roar ) here writes with skill and cutting wit--if occasional shrillness--of her alienation from her native England, cataloguing the views of a ``self-respecting Anglophobe'' on a society she considers bigoted, a country decaying under an outmoded class system from which many flee to find the opportunities lacking at home. Among other flaws in the British character Hazleton zeroes in on is the passivity that allowed Thatcher to slash funds for education and national health care. The author also speculates on why Blunt, Philby, Burgess and MacLean spied for the Soviets and why news of their treachery was long suppressed. Her targets extend to royalty and even to the kitsch sold at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, ``quaint gifts'' as embarrassing to Will's spirit as to hers, she contends. The Bard proves to be one of the few Britons this expatriate admires. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Anglophiles aren't looking beneath the surface, says itinerant journalist Hazelton ( Jerusalem, Jerusalem , LJ 6/1/86 ) , who does just that when she returns to England only to get her green card to work legally in America. Hazelton encounters ``dry rot'' everywhere--literally in the crumbling foundations of Liverpool's Museum of Immigration and figuratively in the rigid, class-defined British lifestyle. Underlying British rage and frustration erupts in forums like the football match, Hazelton says, and Margaret Thatcher is the ``grocer's daughter'' who is both changing and alienating this society. While Hazelton is perhaps unfairly harsh--she always felt the outsider in England and left it as soon as she could--this commentary will be a dose of reality to those who worship at the Brideshead Revisited altar. Recommended.-- Judy Quinn, ``Library Journal''
