The Revolutionists

by Christopher Anderson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
a novel about a small group of social misfits and outcasts from society who have vague ideas of launching a peaceful revolution against capitalism.
Description
"Kam" is an ex-environmental activist who has hit bottom: His wife has left him, he lives in a rat-infested apartment in town, drinks too much and suffers from blackouts. "Brenda" is a woman with whom Kam used to engage in Edward Abee style monkeywrenching, until she and her husband were busted and went to prison. When she is out on parole and while her husband is still in prison, she re-establishes the affair she had once had with Kam. Kam also develops a strong bond with Brenda's twelve-year-old son. Abbie is an ex-revolutionist from the 1960s. He used to rob banks with the George Jackson Brigade, was arrested and served time in prison. He is now an old hippie living hand to mouth. When he meets Kam, his old revolutionary ideals are restored. When Brenda's husband is released from prison, this small group of misguided idealists decide to resume the revolution against capitalism.
