Johnny Hilbunabout this book: How To Make Love While Conscious is an incisive, humorous, and compelling novel about radical off-grid communities, anarchist revolution, and media manipulation, set in both the radical and "English" worlds of the declining near-future.
Several decades from now, San Antonian Jim Salvatierra works at a plumbing fixture warehouse and is also part of a radical culture-jamming organization that's had minimal impact so far. That is, until a mundane permaculture video turns him and his "comrade" Inez into superstars.
After years of dadaist stunts and off-grid proselytizing, Jim and Inez achieve a dangerous level of fame which sends them hitchhiking and trainhopping across the country in search of what counterculture really means.
"No one cared about us. We weren't a threat. The U.S. Government of AmeriKKKa wasn't going anywhere, it was just the same old undulating blob, except it had gained a few more moldy spots, sprouted a few more choice slimes and hairy patches, vestigial organs posing as progress, all stress and vomitus and orgasm, but no big whoop. We crept up and closed the cellar door."
