An infinity of Days in the Psychotic Atomik Empire
Norton flexes his literary muscles and takes on an impressive breadth of topics in these gritty, passionate tales. He turns genres inside out, has a hell of an ear for dialogue and knows how to tell a good story.
Based on an actual wildcat strike which occurred in South Chicago in 1979 the novel tells the story of a middle aged college professor, and former 1960s radical, who finds himself caught in the web of a midlife crisis and a decaying marriage.
"This book was written by a good union man, a former organizer, street fighter, and labor editor. He's writing about the real problems of industrial workers." - Bob Johnson, former leader of the rank and file group, The Action Committee, and former President of United Steelworkers local #7495.
