My Revolutions

Hari Kunzru

Thirty years ago Chris inhabited the morally fraught borderlands between social activism and terrorism. Now the past is catching up with him. From the outset we're grappling with big issues of ideals and corruption, but never losing sight of human scale love and friendships. I was hooked from page one: a thoroughly satisfying read.

Extract

We had a rule. We'd all agreed. We would attack property but never people. That was supposed to be an absolute prohibition, a line we would never cross. What good, I wanted to know, was a gun against a building? Sean told me to relax. It was all spectacle. We had no reason to use them.
