"In Reading town the violence of change was more obvious. Here, in a town which had always been Countercultural heartland, it looked more permanent. The music and video that acted as urban décor were cutting-edge, but the Shopping Mall Generics had vanished, taken over by farmers' markets. Personal cars had gone, or turned up ingeniously recycled. Asphault and brick and concrete had been torn up to let weeds and wilderness flourish in the streets. There were marks of privation. The 'see a queue, join a queue' mentality of Eastern Europe prevailed. But the wandering crowds were peaceful; there were buskers but no beggars, and there were no weapons in sight." --Gwyneth Jones, Castles Made of Sand (2002)
