An England that has ceased to exist

Benjamin Markovits has an interesting piece at Prospect Magazine about which English novels Americans buy and read. (Via William Skidelsky at the Guardian, who has some sensible and enjoyably scathing things to say about boarding-school and country-house tastes--hmmm, my new novel's set partly in a boarding-school too, I think he may be underrating the appeal of the school setting for non-class-based reasons--though of course the popularity of Prep might confirm his point...)
