Synopsis: A rare novel set against a punk-rock background that works as a cultural document—punk and politics: a way of life. A film based on the novel is in currently in development.
 
For 15-year-old Joe Martin, growing up on the outskirts of West London, the summer of 1977 means punk rock, busy pubs, disco girls, stolen cars, social-club lager, cutthroat Teddy Boys, and a job picking cherries with the gypsies. Life is sweet—until he is attacked by a gang of youths and thrown into the Grand Union Canal with his best friend Smiles. Fast forward to 1988, and Joe is traveling home on the Trans-Siberian Express after three years away, remembering the highs and lows of the intervening years as he comes to terms with tragedy. Fast forward to 2000, and life is sweet once more. Joe is earning a living selling records and fight tickets, playing his favorite 45s as a punk DJ, but when a face from the past steps out of the mist he is forced to relive that night in 1977 and deal with the fallout. Human Punk is the story of punk, a story of friendship, and a story of common bonds and a shared culture—sticking the boot in, sticking together. This edition includes a new introduction from the author.

From the Inside Flap: For fifteen-year-old Martin, growing up in Slough, the summer of 1977 means punk rock, reggae, disco, stolen cars, cut-throat gangs, and a job picking cherries for the gypsies. Life is sweet - until he's beaten up and thrown in the Grand Union canal with his best friend, Smiles. Fast forward to 1988 and Joe is heading home on the Trans-Siberian Express after three years working in a Hong Kong bar. Fast forward again to 2000, and Joe is sitting pretty as a DJ - until a face from the past forces him to re-live that night in 1977 and deal with the fall-out.
