Auteur: King, John
Titel: Human Punk
For 15-year-old Joe Martin, growing up in England, the summer of 1977 means punk rock, reggae, disco girls, stolen cars, and a job picking cherries with the gypsies. Life is sweet--until Joe is beaten up and thrown into a canal along with his best mate Smiles. Fast forward to 1988, and Joe is traveling home on the Trans-Siberian Express after three years working in a Hong Kong bar, remembering the highs and lows of the intervening years, and coming to terms with Smiles' suicide. Fast forward to 2000, and Joe is sitting pretty--earning a living as a DJ. Life is sweet again--until a face from the past forces him to relive that night in 1977 and deal with the fall-out.
