(? - ) UK author of No Man's Land (1975), set in a Dystopian Near Future Britain based on a coercive concentration of the working class in high-rise tenements. As something similar happened in the real world during the twentieth century – a process morganatically wedded to the English Garden Suburb movement, which bequeathed good lives upon middle-class inhabitants – the outcome, in which a young lad transformatively escapes bondage and helps keep an industrial Robot from destroying an ancient dwelling, was perhaps difficult to credit.
