Peace Love & Petrol Bombs

£8.00

Product Information

Wayne Foster is fed up. How long can you work a dead-end job as a full-time burger-flipper in a small town in Scotland before you start to wonder what comes next? Add a likeable geek with a love of political theory and an angry French anarchist, and suddenly you have a rebellion on your hands.

Told with humour and pathos, Peace, Love & Petrol Bombs is simultaneously an exploration of the individual in society, a rallying call to collective action and an argument for the contemporary importance of revolutionary politics. It is the modern working-class novel, rife with dry wit and disaffected humour - the perfect antidote to "serious" political fiction.

Author D D Johnston's debut novel, published by us!

 

 

Recent reviews for Peace, Love, & Petrol Bombs:


“A well told and exceptionally well written ‘coming of age’ novel that draws the reader in to a life that will be alien to many: and spits you out again at the other end feeling entertained, informed, and more than a little curious to know what happens to Wayne next…

“Shot through with deadpan humour, it’s both hilarious and heart wrenching…. It’s also unflinching in its honest depiction of Scottish working class life…. A great debut novel.”
