Praise for Oranges and Lemons:
A really engaging look at new and old cultures colliding, and the fallout that ensues… Richard Holliday’s use of language is playful as well as skilful, a very enjoyable author to read.Sam Richards
Interesting premise. Set in an almost-real 80s rural America, it reads in part as a semi-polemic against the excesses of industrial capitalism.m0ok
