THE KIDS LOVE COMMUNISM THESE DAYS

When I began working on my novel, I Was a Teenage Communist, my teenage daughter said that it would be a big hit. “The kids love communism these days,” she told me. “All of those coming-of-age books for teens totally miss the mark. They don’t speak to what the kids are going through. We are concerned with social justice and reading books that tell us what other generations did to raise a voice.” I was heartened. Though I had my qualms, because even the word communism is slippery. All of the best books on communism from Das Kapital to The Romance of American Communism by Vivian Gornick leaves one wanting. Why? Because communism only exists as a utopian fantasy. Which is why I Was a Teenage Communist is a great book for young adults. It hits that sweet spot between righteousness and romance. The romantic notion that we could one day live in a classless society. Like what John Lennon sings in the song he wrote with Yoko, which she has only recently been credited with co-writing, the song Imagine. Nice song, nice dream.
