* Publisher Indepently PUblished
* Publication date 2015

* Description Derek, Tim and 'Trol' are three ageing rebels, hitting their fifties. Disillusioned by the way the world has turned out and the frustration of their teenage dreams of a better life or a revolution. All they have left are stories of past glory and pints of cheap beer at one of the last punk-pubs in London. Watching a riot unfurl on television, to no point and no effect, their frustration boils over and they decide to do something futile and stupid, a grand, nihilistic gesture of futility.

Comedy, social and political satire, and frustration all meet in this story of a 'revolutionary caper' in a style somewhere between The Comic Strip Presents and Guy Ritchie.

When I do a search using the ISBN on the back of my paperback book I get nothing.

When I do a search with just the title of the book I get an ebook and kindle version of this book.

I know there is a paperback version since I have it in my hands, so either I am doing something wrong or it is not in the database yet.

Please add this version so that I can add it to my currently reading pile.
