Anthony Keating, a middle-aged former BBC producer turned property developer, has had a terrible year. His undoubted talents have brought him a dodgily prosperous living, an estranged wife, a devoted mistress, several children and a heart attack. He is paralysed by his situation, as are his friends by theirs. Welcome to the Ice Age.

In this brilliant tragicomedy, Margaret Drabble examines the complex state of Britain in the early 1970s – from the property crisis and collapsing economy to social unrest and a frozen culture. Darkly sardonic but brilliantly humane, The Ice Age tackles the anguish of thwarted hopes in search for new meaning.
