Summary

‘The barbarians are sweeping over us and all we do is kiss their ass.’

An Englishman and his family live far-flung across the vast American continent. Brought together by tragedy, they find comfort in attacking their adopted country, ridiculing its crude ways and lack of standards.

Humour and irony as well as the sense of loss and longing permeate this story of exiles unable to address a world that is passing by.
