When Jayne Silver moves into a share house in Brooklyn with three young men, her charismatic best friend Abby quickly becomes a permanent house-guest. Incensed by plans for yet another militaristic ‘humanitarian intervention’, the household friends create a pacifist-activist group, Patriots Opposed to War – POW.
The story of how these hazy hedonists graduate from low level vandalism to burglary and destruction, and ultimately to armed robbery and mass murder, is witty, engrossing and vibrant. It’s a story of relationships and ideals, appetites and adventures, and it leads to a shattering, bloody climax.
You’ll come away adoring Abby, cheering for Jayne and her ‘house boys’, and wondering – did that really happen?
