Description - The War Next Door by Tamsin Oglesby
Sophie and Max are a thoroughly modern British couple, cosmopolitan, open-minded. They've even constructed their own eco loo (well, it does save thirty litres of water a day). Then there's Hana and Ali next door. Neighbours, but in every other sense, a world apart. Max is a lawyer, albeit a lawyer who grows his own dope. Okay, what a man does on his own patch is his business - but when war starts raging next door, whose business is that? If ever there was a time for liberal intervention, this is surely it. Tamsin Oglesby's black comedy takes a humorous and subversive look at the world we live in today - one of multi-culturalism and blurred boundaries. And one in which violence is right on our own doorstep - no matter where we come from.
