July Books 20) 334, by Thomas M. Disch

I’m far behind with bookblogging (though hoping to catch up now) and it’s several weeks since I read this. I must say that it wasn’t a brilliant choice of holiday novel; the disjointed narrative failed to engage me, and I felt that the stories never quite concentrated sufficiently on either near-future world-building or interesting characterisation. It was interesting that Disch correctly saw the politics of reproduction as being so prominent in the twenty-first century, although the detail has turned out rather differently.

    It seems like every successive UK government ‘tightens up’ immigration, with the aim of discouraging foreign ‘scroungers’ from entering the country. As the situation now stands I would either have to have around 64 thousand pounds in the bank, or a job paying 18 thousand per annum to bring my family back to the UK. The new rules virtually exile or split-up families where one parent is British – unless said Briton is rich. Disgusting and infuriating.
