Sugar in the Air


Large, E.C.

Cl. London, 2008

Book ID: 78465

Back in print after an absence of nearly 70 years the facsimile edition of E. C. Large's novel Sugar in the Air is what we now call a "mash-up" made up of scientific research social satire and fictional flights of fancy. Sugar in the Air (1937) is a "scientific romance" in which the idea of extracting sugar from the air is held for the duration of the book in suspended disbelief by characters desperate for work in a period of economic recession.
