Inhaltsangabe: Great Britain. 1984. The miners' strike. It is the closest Britain has come to civil war in fifty years, setting the government against the people. David Peace's sweeping, bloody and dramatic fictional portrait of the year that left an indelible mark on the nation's consciousness covers a broad and unexpected canvas of characters. Peace describes the insidious workings of the boardroom negotiations and the increasingly anarchic coalfield battles; the struggle for influence in government and the dwindling powers of the NUM; and the corruption, intrigue and dirty tricks which run through the whole like a fault in a seam of coal. GB84 is a shocking fictional documentation of the violence, sleaze and fraudulence that characterised Thatcher's Britain.
Über den Autor: David Peace ? named in 2003 as one of Granta?s Best of Young Novelists ? is the acclaimed author of the Red Riding Quartet ( 1974, 1977, 1980, and 1983), which was adapted into a BBC television series that was released theatrically in the United States, and is currently being adapted into a major motion picture directed by Ridley Scott. Peace is also the author of the highly praised Tokyo Trilogy, which so far includes Tokyo Year Zero and Occupied City. His book GB84 was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and The Damned Utd was called ?probably the best novel ever written about sport? by The Times (UK). His newest book, Red or Dead, was shortlisted for the UK?s prestigious Goldsmith?s Prize.
