    Description
    An idyll of the English countryside: a beautiful summer's evening in a Kent field, and around their two caravans a little group of strawberry pickers is getting ready to celebrate a birthday.

    But who picks our strawberries these days? The Ukrainians: Irina, just off the coach from Kiev, Andriy, the miner's son from the other Ukraine; the Poles: Bob Dylan fan, Tomasz, Yola, the petite, voluptuous gangmistress and her religious niece Marta, then there is Vitaly, king of the new mobilfon world of the shiny new Eastern Europe; two Chinese girls; Emanuel from Malawi whoes come to England to look for his sister. And there's also the Dog . . .

    But these are a group leading dangerous lives - exploitative employers, British regulations and gang masters with guns will all threaten their existence as they take to the caravan road.

    Hilarious, gritty, moving, and slapstick by turns 'Two Caravans' has every bit of the extraordinary distinctiveness and wit and heart that made 'A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian' so successful.
