Witness to the future, by Klaus Rifbjerg

From the back cover: "Mik and Niels, two boys from the occupied Denmark of 1941, crawl through a cave and emerge in 1988, to a world that is both strangely familiar and dramatically different.  for sheer survival they team up with a street-wise young punker, who leads them on a headlong race toward Copenhagen while most people are fleeing the city under the shadow of imminent nuclear war.  Chased by police helicopters, guard dogs, and motorcycle gangs, the boys endure a series of harrowing adventures as they try to get back to theown era - which seems ironically civilized compared to the havoc of the eighties."


From Publishers Weekly: "[Klaus] Rifbjerg, a prolific Danish author who rarely has been translated into English, offers an allegory of the chaos and emptiness of modern times that conveys admiration for a simpler past."
