Eat the Document by Dana Spiotta

An ambitious and powerful story about idealism, passion, and sacrifice, Eat the Document shifts between the underground movement of the 1970s and the echoes and consequences of that movement in the 1990s.

A National Book Award finalist, Eat the Document is a riveting portrait of two eras and one of the most provocative and compelling novels of recent years.

This is a great example of compelling literary fiction. A great spread of characters- a sullen 15year old, a sad and vague suburban mom, her secret past, a paranoid and hallucinating shop owner, and his slackerish manager who is amused by all the young activists. This is a story about how we come to posses identity and what happens when we shed an old identity for a new one.

I thought that this would be a good book. However, I thought that it was long and slow going. At or about pp 150 is when the book start to move. I think that the story line could have been better written. I could have gone without some of the characters.
