The Ballad of Martin B.
The Ballad of Martin B. uses the punk world as a background for its plot. It follows a young anarchist whose determination to tear down society’s complacency is being guided by ghosts of past thinkers. Not only does the narrative realistically capture the squalor and degeneracy of a very raw underground scene, it also engages the reader intellectually by delving into age-old philosophical issues.
This book is a Clockwork Orange on anti-depressants. What Anthony Burgess really wanted to convey but couldn’t quite get down to it because he was afraid of the raw sexual slashing and clashing.
