The Queen and I
After some forty years on the throne of England to be rehouse on a council estate in the Midlands comes as something of a shock to the Queen. In fact, it is a nightmare.
But when the People's Republican Party achieves an unexpected election victory — thanks go the subliminal brainwashing of the electorate by disaffected television technicians — their first act in government is to order the Royal Family to vacate Buckingham Palace and move into Hell Close. As the Aubusson rugs are cut to size and the odd salvaged Titian waits to be mounted on teh anaglypta walls, the Royals gird themselves for their new life living next door to the working class.
This compelling scenario is the starting point for Sue Townsend's wickedly funny anfd engaging new novel. In the Adrian Mole books, she offered a telling series of snapshots of British life in the eighties. The Queen and I is a brilliantly subversive fiction of the nineties.
