Paradise will be heaven on earth, a chance to get back to the land and live the simple life. But human nature isn't simple...Jug wants a whole lot more than peace and love - the profits from a dope patch, for start. Lucy aims to pay off the commune mortgage in the only way she knows. And where does that leave Tony, who has fallen in love? Meanwhile the hippies are due to play the Christians at soccer, and the rednecks want the gates of Paradise shut for good. There's high humour and an endearing compassion for human foibles in Norman Bilbrough's slice of local utopia. A Short History of Paradise is a funny and poignant novel.
