Omtale: Jokerman 8
A NOVEL FOCUSING ON ECO-SABOTEUR ACTIVISTS AND A MULTI-STRANDED NARRATIVE ABOUT TWO PASTS THAT CAN NEVER BE RECONSTITUTED Jokerman 8 is a posse of forest radicals based out of San Francisco State University that engages in a series of demonstrations and stunts to protest environmental destruction: they sink whaling ships in iceland and stage a "tree-in" in southern Oregon, then party to let off steam. Along the way, numerous subplots merge the past with the present: a young man tries to escape the draft, and yippies succeed in levitating the Pentagon. Challenging and irreverent, the text moves at a breakneck pace, stopping just long enough to question how the world got the way it is and how it might be fixed.
