My Revolutions: A Novel by Hari Kunzru

Warning! If you have read this author and loved him you may be disappointed because this is nothing like his other work (Well, his use of language is still superb but the plot, very different.)

Hari Kunzru explores the question of what happens to revolutionary characters after the revolution. In this page turning novel, college student Chris Carver joins the revolution in London which quickly turns terrorist causing him to leave behind his identity and create a new life for himself. Every page infuses fresh life into the often told story of 1960’s idealism and Chris’ need to change the world that abruptly erupts into violence and terrorism.
