Pocket removed.The story of one young man, a student drawn by personality and background to the revolutionary movement. The young man, who is called "A", runs a gamut of radical activities and attitudes-demonstrates in the public square, smuggling a deported party leader back across the border, holing up to evade the police, coping with factional rivalries, plotting the assassination of a political figure, even seducing a nice respectable bourgeois girl as an act in the class war. But up to the point of his final act of rebellion, a planned murder, A, is torn between his commitment and nostalgia for his middle-class roots. A muted, unpredictable love story runs like a counterpoint through the novel, whose time and setting are deliberately imprecise, so that is could be taken as expressing the mood of certain young men and women in Paris in 1848, in St. Petersburg in 1905 or in Harlem in 1967.Visit myeCRATER store forother great booksand save on shipping!Most books haveshelf wear and cover scuffing.
