[nice tight clean book, slight bumping to top corners; jacket shows just a bit of wrinkling around base of spine and at top edge of rear panel]. Novel about a successful playwright who attempts to prevent his son from renouncing his citizenship by relating the story of his own life: "his youth in the 'thirties; his rebellion against his unschooled father; his discovery of the Communist Party and the Party's manipulation of him; and his eventual painful awakening and its aftermath." Spanning the Great Depression to the present day, the story "is highlighted with Communist intrigues, Hollywood studio infighting, army interrogations, and New York stage conflicts."
