Description

Beasts of England is just fantastic – really funny, clever, timely, and sufficiently uncategorizable to deliver itself of its dark message with lightness and charm. — Rachel Cusk

In Beasts of England, Adam Biles hooks readers into a world that should be impossible – but becomes even more real than our own. An ambitious, brilliant, compelling novel. — Jenni Fagan

Manor Farm has reinvented itself as the South of England’s premium petting zoo. Now, instead of a working farm, humans and beasts alike are invited (for a small fee) to come and stroke, fondle, and take rides on the farm’s inhabitants.

But life is not a bed of roses for the animals, in spite of what their leaders may want them to believe. Elections are rigged, the community is beset by factions, and sacred mottos are being constantly updated. The Farm is descending into chaos. What’s more, a mysterious ‘illness’ has started ripping through the animals, killing them one by one…

In Beasts of England, Adam Biles honours, updates and subverts George Orwell’s classic, all the while channelling the chaotic, fragmentary nature of populist politics in the Internet age into a savage farmyard satire.
