Some rather broad scenes – including a sex-shop trip – disrupt the pace somewhat, but this passionate, sad and well-told book offers a compelling portrait of a flawed young radical.

Synopsis

Eddie Bereskin wants to change the world and stop the war, instead his life unravels after he is arrested on a Halloween protest in 2002. An incredible story about loss and hope set in London, Eddie the Kid takes us to the anti-war movement and two generations of activists, where, amid rioting and arrests, the destinies of Eddie and his sister Esther have been shaped.
