This book ticked a lot of boxes for me I loved itIt's not the easiest read owing to the mix of third person and first person points of view one of the first person POVs is that of a dog first canine perhapsBut it's certainly worth sticking to it because it allows the reader to get inside a number of heads and find out what makes them tick and see the world through their eyes through the filter of their knowledgeThis books plumbs the depths and goes to some suallid places that can make us feel ashamed to be part of the human raceBut it also has some splendid comic momentsTo my mind that's what makes a great writer the ability to go from light to dark again and back to light again There's no black no white just lots of shades of interesting greyI also like that this book was written to no formula that I know It's original A breath of fresh air

I enjoyed this soapy novel about migrant workers in England But don't take that as a recommendation as this book would irritate uite a few of my GR friends Average friend rating is currently 225 plus two fairly positive reviews without star ratings Like this one Hmm I enjoyed it 4 stars much but would probably in a few months find myself embarrassed about the rating and remove or downgrade it so I'm just not adding one in the first place Edit Nope it's the end of November now and I still want to give it 4 stars because I enjoyed it a lotI started Two Caravans a couple of days before the Booker International shadowing began I was desperate to read something with minimal pressure that I expected to enjoy which no one I knew would consider 'important' and I wanted to see if I could read without making highlights and notes because I was starting to do my own head in with my inability to go even one Kindle screen's worth without doing both I only read a little before the longlist was announced and now Two Caravans has bookended the prize sorry as I picked it up again on the day of the announcement and finished it the day afterI'm treating it as popular fiction though I think technically it would fall into the 'book club fiction' marketing category it has multiple viewpoint switches and occasional paragraphs narrated from the point of view of a dog in all caps with no punctuation which publicity people would probably call literary It ticked a lot of boxes for what I would like from popular fiction things which are uite difficult to find in practice a strong focus on average or low paid work with or less realistic depictions of jobs and people; humour and adventure but with an awareness of the grittier side of life; not primarily about standard genre topics like romance crime etc but these are okay as subplotsLewycka clearly did some good research It was obvious she'd been to the book's main locations across England and it was particularly impressive how closely the account of the work on chicken farms matched up to a case that was recently prosecuted More background here She also captured details like how much chicken sheds stink if you are unused to them and how the work in animal slaughter and processing is often monstrous and how people psychologically modify around it some becoming monstrous themselves but some also not Likewise having once lived with someone doing kitchen porter work that job rang true tooOne of the main problems with the book is that some of the wordforms of characters speaking English as a second language especially when they are writing sound unlikely and exaggerated and as if they are written to demonstrate the differences between characters from various countries But then having characters with written voices that sounded similar could also be a problem Towards the end of the book this decreases in the Ukrainian characters and the errors sound increasingly realistic mostly just missed articles Slavic languages don't have articles and a few words not known though the apparently unlikely errors are still present a bit in the letters written by Malawian Emmanuel I don't think Lewycka intends to mock the characters and as she seems to have some experience in frontline public services she has also written several non fiction manuals for carers I think she is inspired by types of people encountered there some of whom present for help because they don't have very good bullshit detection abilities on their own But these days a critically inclined reader could say she is generalising migrant workers as either naive or exploitative The book was first published in 2007 when British publishing and media took multiculturalism for granted social media barely existed the recession had not yet hit and there was a liberal assumption that being anti immigration was a fringe opinion that would continue to decrease Fictional characters of East European migrant workers holding opinions that were sexist or stereotypical of BAME people could read as simply realistic and these characters as good guys male and female because there wasn't the level of overt prejudice against either Eastern Europeans or PoC that is now visible via social media and party politics and there hadn't been much public conversation about the problems of replicating stereotyping via fictional characters who practise it themselves The way the 'Chinese girls' were portrayed through the eyes of the Ukrainian characters would be considered off but their anonymity to the Ukrainians and the lack of staying in touch albeit not that much giggling seemed completely plausible based on my own experience on a course several years before this book was published which had a contingent of Chinese international students who didn't speak much English and who stuck together These days I think narrative from the Chinese girls' viewpoint especially as a conclusion would be expected from the novel I tend to think of stereotyping as a near inevitable part of popular fiction outside SFF ie it's an unusual and pleasant surprise if it's not there but there is plenty about this book that I can't imagine being published by a UK literary adjacent imprint as an English language original in 2019A character from South Yorks attributes a lot of proverbs and opinions to Jimmy Binbag which is never really explained I knew someone from the same area who was always attributing similar stuff facetiously to a celebrity Jimmy I always assumed it was a personal schtick But is this some local thing Almost impossible to GoogleWeird editing decision I'm sure Lewycka knows about the Black Madonna of Częstochowa so I can only presume it was an editor who changed it to the Black Madonna of Kraków for the sake of a place British readers would have heard of or something like that A particularly religious Polish worker puts up a picture of herEnjoyed this than A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian One of my least favourite episodes in Two Caravans was when one of the characters from Tractors cropped up 'Motley cast of characters thrown together for a road trip' is usually a winning trope for me and so it was hereVery useful review here from Alta who explains that Lewycka writes in the tradition of Russian satirists Ilf Petrov who have been recommended to me before but whom I've not yet got round to reading Their most famous book in English to the extent they have one is The Golden CalfRead reviewed May 2019

This story explores the experiences of a random group of Eastern European immigrant workers in the UK It very cleverly captures the changes that have occurred in the UK over the last 5 years since Europe started expanding into the East I also like the way the book is written in the voice of all of the characters involved except for the dog which is just plain stupid I was thoroughly confused by all of the comments that covered the book from the press about how it was hilarious the funniest book etc I guess this was their marketing ploy but it isn't hilarious in fact the situations the characters find themselves in would only be funny if it wasn't so true The fact that the dedication at the front of the book is to the Morecambe bay cockle pickers says it all The ending becomes absolutely ridiculous but given the content of most of the book I was willing to let it go Not a masterpiece by any means but definitely worth reading from a social standpoint
