Please attend the West Coast launch of Ramor Ryan's debut novel,
Clandestines: The Pirate Journals of an Irish Exile
Wednesday, June 7th, 8:00 pm
Station 40 -- 3030 B, 16th Street (@ Mission)
A shrewd political thinker and philospher, Ryan spirits the reader from the Zapatista Autonomous Zone to a Kurdish guerrilla camp, from Berlin
squats to Croatian rainbow gatherings. Clandestines is an epic debut...non-fiction tales that read like Che's Motorcycle Diaries...if they'd written by Hunter S. Thompson. At each stop along the way, we see a world in flux, struggling to be reborn.
"I'm convinced now that all we need is about a hundred more Ramors and the revolution would commence tomorrow."
-- David Graeber, Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology
"... a geography lesson of the shadows, where borders are disregarded, revolution is in the air, and adventure is always just around the corner."
-- Jennifer Whitney, We Are Everywhere
Ramor Ryan is an Irish anarchist writer living between Chiapas, Mexico and New York City. He has written for a wide variety of radical newspapers, magazines, and books.
