One thought on “Journey to the Border

  1. Forest

    Interesting existential socialist novel about a young British tutor s day at the horse races Highly symbolic with many surreal absurd touches, but also comes dangerously close to being socialist propaganda Maybe what you would get if you combined Fitzgerald, Joyce and Upton Sinclair Author was a school friend of Christopher Isherwood and will appeal to fans of Lions and Shadows, in which he appears, though it s about three times as ambitious worth checking out.

  2. Chris Sulavik

    Quirky, quaint, and a nice window into Marxist minds Especially intriguing given that it was published by Hogarth Press, founded by Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard in their house in Richmond on the Thames which I was lucky enough to visit.

  3. Saina Tarverdy

    Somehow comparable to Kafka s works, but the ending was not what I expected It s simplistic to count it as a socialist propaganda though some passages do sound like it I enjoyed this book very much
