Summary
In today's England of collapsing economy and stately homes, social unrest and Oxonian order, a BBC editor, a real-estate shark, a roguish young woman, and a middle-aged ex-actress prepare for crucial changes in their lives and reflect one another's transformations
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Anthony Keating is a middle-aged property developer in Yorkshire in the mid-seventies. Having escaped London's hustle-bustle and survived a heart attack aged just thirty eight, he awaits the return of his lover Alison, who is trying to help her daughter incarcerated in a draconian Eastern bloc country. With debts spiralling out of control, Anthony realises that he and his friends are bound to the engine driving the society in which they live and that should it falter, so will they. The Ice Age is a portrait of a Britain of boom and bust, and greed - and uncannily predicts the Thatcher years.
