Auteur: Sunday, Kurtis
Titel: Anarchy in a Cold War
'Anarchy in a Cold War', a novel of Berlin, living with the Bomb, Punk, protest and alternatives is set in the West Berlin alternative-squatter-Punk scene in 1981, during the latter part of the Cold War. The city, a focal point in the conflict between East and West, and a capitalist enclave smack in the middle of Communist East Germany, is entirely surrounded by the Berlin Wall, complete with razor wire and machine gun posts. There is much that is familiar and much that is not. The missiles on both sides are armed and waiting in their silos. If nuclear war breaks out there will be a four minute warning. There is no internet and perhaps NO FUTURE. Reality? Sur-reality? Or hyper-reality? And then there are the squatters, and the police … In this punk-lit novel Kurtis Sunday provides an on-the-spot account. First published by Hooligan Press in the 1980s, and now republished by Cambria Books.
