Description
An award-winning novelist looks back at the sixties to answer the question "What turns a radical into a terrorist?" Chris Carver is living a lie. His wife, their teenage daughter, and everyone in their circle know him as Michael Frame, suburban dad. They have no clue that as a radical student in the sixties, he briefly became a terrorist, protesting the Vietnam War by setting bombs around London. Chris believes he has left his past behind--until he sees the ghost of a dead ex-lover. Shortly after, an old friend turns up on his doorstep, wanting to reminisce and hinting at blackmail. Chris must escape all over again. On the run, he remembers his days as an isolated, idealistic youth, hopelessly in love with Anna Addison, competing for her affections with Sean Ward, charismatic leader of the radical August 14th Group. Ideologies collided and lines blurred until the events of one horrifying night forced them apart forever. Now Chris wonders: Who was he? Who is he? What side was he on back then? Which side is he on today?

display_description It's the day before Mike Frame's fiftieth birthday and his quiet provincial life is suddenly falling apart. But perhaps it doesn't matter, because it's not his life in the first place. He has a past that his partner Miranda and step-daughter Sam know nothing about, lived under another name amidst the turbulence of the revolutionary armed struggle of the 1970s. Now Mike is seeing ghosts - a dead ex-lover and an old friend who wants to reminisce. Miranda, who once spoke about alternative lifestyles with the emphasis on alternative, rather than lifestyles, is reinventing herself as a thrusting nineties businesswoman. Mike can no longer ignore the contradiction between who he is and who he once was. Which side was he on back then? And which side is he on now? Gripping, moving, provocative and passionate, My Revolutions brings to brilliant life both the radical idealism of the post-'68 generation and the darker currents which ran beneath it, the eddies of which still shape our history today.
