Dance the Eagle to Sleep: A Novel

By: Piercy, Marge

Price: $17.95

Quantity: 2 available

Book Condition: New


Originally published in 1970, Marge Piercy?s second novel follows the lives of four teenagers, in a near future society, as they rebel against a military draft and ?the system.? The occupation of Franklin High School begins, and with it, the open rebellion of America?s youth against their channeled, unrewarding lives and the self-serving, plastic society that directs them. From the disillusionment and alienation of the young at the center of the revolt, to their attempts to build a visionary new society, the nationwide following they gain and the brutally complete repression that inevitably follows, this is a future fiction without a drop of fantasy. As driving, violent, and nuanced today as it was 40 years ago, this anniversary edition includes a new introduction by the author reflecting unapologetically on the novel and the times from which it emerged.
