This book is about light and shadow. About the darkness of despair and the light of hope. It is about Penny Rimbaud's journey through the darkness, and how that darkness came to shape his life. At the centre of the book lies the story of Phil (Wally Hope) Russell who laid the stones for the first Stonehenge Festivals. It is a tale of despair. Possibly it is the tale of a violent murder. Certainly it is the tale of the destruction of a man's self-respect, of his soul. But out of that story comes the story of the anarchist punk band, CRASS, and out of that the story of a generation's resistance. So out of the darkness comes the light. Out of the despair, a means to fight back.
