Annotation An intrepid, muckraking journalist who came from a home of British Nazi-sympathizers and grew into one of the 20th century's most famous openly-communist Westerners, Jessica "Decca" Mitford gets the biographical treatment in Leslie Brody's IRREPRESSIBLE. Brody's narrative begins when Mitford is just a child, declaring her left-wing sympathy by scratching a Soviet emblem in a window with a diamond ring. Though Mitford grows up to renounce her family, report on the Spanish Civil War and move to America, her childhood in such a fascist household shaped Mitford's life as Brody's title indicates, by her ongoing defiance in the face of repression.
Editors Note Follows the life of a young British aristocrat who severed ties with her family and moved to the United States to work as a civil rights activist, a Communist organizer, and a writer.
