Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “Eat the Document is a hugely compelling story of activism, sacrifice and the cost of living a secret. In the heyday of the 1970s underground, Bobby DeSoto and Mary Whittaker — passionate, idealistic and in love — design a series of radical protests against the Vietnam War. When one action goes wrong, the course of their lives is forever changed. The two must erase their past, forge new identities and never see one another again. Now it is the 1990s. Mary lives in the suburbs with her fifteen-year-old son, who spends hours immersed in the music of his mother’s generation. She has no idea where Bobby is, whether he is alive or dead. Shifting between the protests of the 1970s and the consequences of choices made back then in the 1990s, Dana Spiotta deftly explores the connection between the two eras — their language, technology, music and activism. Eat the Document is an important and revelatory novel about the culture of rebellion.”
