Description

Herbert WeinbergÂ’s father is striking a blow for freedom. Implanting a nuclear device within a garden gnome in the front yard of their Long Island home, heÂ’s declared independence from the U.S. The household is understandably is an uproar. MotherÂ’s gone, the local weatherman has moved in, and 12-year-old Herbert is simultaneously a hostage and the Minister of Information. A daring raid plucks the lad from his ancestral home, but even while troops surround the belligerent house-state of Weinbergia, the call to freedom has been sounded. The house is rapidly filling up with American refuseniks. Can the refrigerator hold out? And will HerbertÂ’s telepathic powers defeat imperialism and reunite him with his father? Based on AristophanesÂ’s Archanians, Under My Roof is funny, ambitous novel.show more
