An ironic woman’s take on the iconic years of activism and revolution during the “formidable” sixties and seventies. In this formative novel, a young woman runs away from home to join handsome revolutionaries and fight fascism. Between steamy all-night meetings and working class battles, she ultimately reverts to the intimacy of the “petit-bourgeois” and the comfort of female friendships in a nevertheless extraordinary coming of age journey.
A laughable and irreverent account of a unique time in history from the point of view of woman who has long abandoned ideology.
