If you are lucky enough to have been alive on November 22 1963 you will remember what you were doing when you heard the news that the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, had been assassinated. Johny Lightfoot was picking glass out of a ballerina's foot.

Using scientifico politico moments from the story of the British Independent Nuclear Deterrent and the opposition to it, Johny uncovers his life. He crosses other players: Edward Heath - a Prime Minister, Tommy Cooper - a comedian, Hildegard Knef - a film star and Leonard Cheshire - a war hero, whose bearing on the theme of the shadow of Bomb is imaginatively re-constructed. Frequently deeply puzzled or squashed but never definitely beaten Johny smuggles his genetic identity thru the shifts of English culture and invests it just before BOMB ends.

BOMB moves between London and war time Berlin, between remote islands in Scotland and in the Pacific. We visit Japan and New York, with side trips to Australia, Austria and Morocco. The time span is 1933 to 1983. The book is in four parts. (96100 words).
