GB84 by David Peace, Proof Copy, 2004
London: Faber & Faber, (2004). Proof copy. This is a near fine copy. The soft cover is well illustrated and clean, with only light signs of shelf wear present. The text blocks are generally clean but suffer from a light discolouring at the bottom edge. Overall, this is a near fine copy of a publisher’s proof copy.
Called by its author "fiction based on fact", the book depicts a real-life 1984 more violently than Orwell ever imagined. Slowly starving strikers find themselves pitted against a Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, determined to crush them, a police force willing to use infiltration and violence to achieve her will.
