Radical ideology struggles against a bourgeois upbringing as a conscience rebels in Doris Lessing’s compelling revolutionary satire.
In contemporary London, a loose-knit group of political vagabonds form an ill-defined and volatile underground. Drifting from one cause to the next, they occupy abandoned houses, demonstrate and picket, devise strategies to fit situations that may or may not arise. But, within this world, one small group of men and women - whose deepest conviction seems to rest in a sense of their own largely untested radicalism - is moving inexorably toward active terrorism.
