A Sweet, Sweet Summer by Jane Gaskell

The public execution of Ringo Starr is the first demonstration of power by the aliens whose spacecraft hangs over Britain and seals off the country from the outside world. Out of the chaos the aliens have created emerges a new social order, dominated by mob rule drug farms, and gang warfare.

The hero is a teenage ponce, running a house which is part brothel and part headquarters for a group of Neo Nazi thugs. He operates in a derelict pop world, a savage parody of the permissive society, in which people make love and carve each other up with equal carelessness.

Somerset Maugham Award-winning novel.
