From the Publisher:
Through the prism of the life of her father--lawyer and well-known political activist Bartley Crum--Patricia Bosworth sheds light on an important era in modern American history--from the heady, hope-filled days of Roosevelt's New Deal to the dawn of the Cold War. of photos.The author of Montgomery Clift illuminates America's political culture from the New Deal to the Cold War through the story of her father, a lawyer whose defense of the Hollywood Ten earned him the enmity of McCarthyites. Reprint. 17,500 first printing.
Annotation:
A memoir by Patricia Bosworth, the noted biographer of Diane Arbus and Montgomery Clift, of her father. Bartley C. Crum was a prominent New York lawyer, a confidant of William Randolph Hearst and Wendel Wilkie, a liberal Republican, a Catholic Zionist, and an ardent defender of Communists during the early years of the Cold War. He was also an alcoholic depressive who killed himself in 1959. In her moving recollection Bosworth manages to portray both the charm that her father cast over her childhood as well as the frustrations that his death engendered.

Praise

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"A lively, readable account." - Peter Biskind 05/11/1997

other
"Beautiful and unforgettable, this book goes straight to your heart, and it will stay there a long time." - Robert Caro

other
"Patricia Bosworth has written a remarkably honest and perceptive biography of her father...an absorbing book that, in addition, casts light on significant historical episodes." - Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.

New York Times Book Review
"Patricia Bosworth tells her elegiac story in a tone that is admirable restrained, in prose that conveys strong feelings by understatement. Its main figures emerge vividly but are always kept in proportion to the architecture of the narrative. This is a dark, unflinching story, in which redemption comes from the truth of the telling, the wisdom thereby achieved." - Richard Lingeman 04/27/1997

New York Observer
"The first 34 pages of Patricia Bosworth's extraordinary memoir are as beautifully written as any nonfiction I have ever read. Her subject, her father, is rich enough to fill a thousand pages, but she recreates his saga at barely a third of that length." - Charles Kaiser 05/05/1997
