Longlisted for the Portico Prize 2019
In 2020, Britain is at breaking point… In a country sorely divided, what happens to empathy and tolerance, to generosity of spirit? And can hope survive?
In 2020, years of economic turmoil, bitter debates over immigration, and anger at the political elites have created a maelstrom, a dis-United Kingdom. The country is a bomb waiting to explode. Then it does.
As the nightmare unfolds, a myriad of voices – from across the political and social spectrum – offer wildly differing perspectives on the chaotic events… and unexpectedly reveal modern Britain’s soul with 20/20 acuity.
Thoughtful, compassionate and sometimes provocative, Kenneth Steven’s 2020 is a parable for our times.
