This is an intriguing post, from the LSE blogs, a meditation on how the EU has fared in political fiction. Not well is the answer. In work after work it is either ignored completely – which tells us one thing, or it is portrayed as a dystopian semi-fascist outfit. In a way one has to wonder is the testament to the banal aspect of that project. Ignore it because it is so mundane, or exaggerate it to near absurd proportions because that’s the only way to make it interesting.
Which is mighty odd when you think of the passions expended upon Brexit over the decades.
I love both political fiction and dystopian thrillers and I’m hard pressed to think of many novels in either genre which tackle the EU.
