Klappentext

On May 30, 1995, the NYPD rolled an armored tank down East 13th Street, evicting squatters from two buildings. With gritty prose and vivid descriptions, Cari Luna's debut novel, "The Revolution of Every Day," imagines the lives of five squatters from that time. But almost more threatening than the city lawyers and the private developers them are the rifts within their community. Amelia, taken in by Gerrit as a teen runaway seven years earlier, is now pregnant by his best friend, Steve. Anne, married to Steve, is questioning her commitment to the squatter lifestyle. Cat, a fading legend of the downtown scene and unwitting leader of one of the squats, succumbs to heroin. Amid this chaos, Amelia struggles with her ambivalence about becoming a mother while knowing that her pregnancy has given her fellow squatters a renewed purpose to their fight -- securing the squats for the next generation. Told from multiple points of view, "The Revolution of Every Day" shows readers a life that few people know about or understand.
