Down come the portraits of George Washington. Up go posters of Che. Down comes the Superintendent of Schools. Up go the Rolling Stones. The occupation of Franklin High School begins, and with it, the open rebellion of America's youth against their channelled, unrewarding lives and the self-serving, plastic society that directs them. This dramatic, often shocking novel shows how this rebellion could happen anywhere, maybe a week from tomorrow. Marge Piercy follows four young people caught up in the center of the revolt - their disillusionment and alienation, their attempts to build a visionary new society, the nationwide following they gain, and the brutally complete repression that inevitably follows. This is future fiction without a drop of fantasy, a driving, violent, blunt, and pertinent work by a prodigiously talented and passionately involved young author.
