Summary of My Revolutions Summary of My Revolutions Reviews for My Revolutions An Excerpt from My Revolutions
"Powerful" (The New Yorker), "extraordinary" (The New York Times Book Review), and "brilliant" (Entertainment Weekly)-you won't be able to put down this new novel by the award-winning bestselling author of The Impressionist

Critics have compared him to Martin Amis, Zadie Smith, Tom Wolfe, and Don DeLillo. Granta dubbed him "one of the twenty best fiction writers under forty." Now Hari Kunzru delivers his best novel yet.

Chris Carver is living a lie. His wife, their teenage daughter, and everyone in their circle know him as Michael Frame, suburban dad. They have no idea that as a radical student during the sixties he briefly became a terrorist- protesting the Vietnam War by setting off bombs. Until one day a ghost from his past turns up on his doorstep, forcing Chris on the run.

"An amazingly convincing account of the period."
-The New York Times

"Kunzru can do pretty much whatever he likes with language."
-The New Yorker

"If only more novels had the elegant force of Kunzru's swirling work."
-The Washington Post
