Peace Love & Petrol Bombs


Manufacturer: AK Press

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!

AK Press, 2011.



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…





Undiscovered Scotland (


“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.”

Culture Burn



A modern Ragged Trousered Philanthropists meets Adrian Mole meets the Baader-Meinhof gang on the set ofTrainspotting…. I bunked off work and read it in a little over a day.
