Party Discipline: a novella set in the world of Walkaway

Originally published at:

I wrote the novella Party Discipline while I was on my grueling US/Canada/UK tour for my novel Walkaway, last spring. Today, publishes the tale, in which two seniors at Burbank High confront their uncertain future by planning a “Communist party” in which they take over a defunct factory and start it up again, a tangible, dangerous, playful reminder that material abundance is here, it’s just not evenly distributed.


Thanks @doctorow, that was great, a real gut-punch. Uh, a pleasant gut-punch.


Yeah, another good “Walkaway” story, thanks
