Book Description 
  
England is a strange place-- funny, complex and sad. Distance yourself from it, experience other cultures-- then look again. That strangeness becomes almost overwhelming.  
  
This is a powerful and perceptive view of England in the eighties. Using ideas of 'pleasure,' Chis Steele-Perkins explores a public, ritual face that cuts across class and location. What we see is not only familiar it is also frequently disturbing.
