Review

A book for everyone interested in the world now. Some pairings can be relied on – literature and life, Steptoe and Son, Lennon and McCartney, Nicholas Royle and a good anthology. 1968 is the year that made so much of what we are. Readers who wish to follow the traces of idealism and war, freedom and sex, should put down their newspapers and read these stories instead. (Andrew O’Hagan)

Synopsis

"'68: New Stories From Children of the Revolution" broadly addresses the theme of revolution, utopia, dystopia and change, and is published to coincide with All Power to the Imagination, a major season of events taking place in London in April/May 2008 to mark the fortieth anniversary of the student uprisings in Paris of May 1968, and other protest movements worldwide that were inspired by them. The ten writers gathered here, all born in 1968, explore the subject of revolution in brand-new specially written short stories. Governments are overthrown, the people are revolting. A utopia here, a dystopia there; from the skulduggery of Elizabethan London to the futuristic visions of science fiction, taking in undergraduate drug abuse, disaffected French youth, psychopathic desperate housewives and democratic cannibals along the way.
