"Fast is always a wonderful storyteller, and the story is a good one. ... Entertaining and memorable". -- Library Journal
Author Bio
Howard Fast
Howard Fast, who once commented, "I have more unwritten stories in me than I can conceivably write in a lifetime," lived to be 88 and wrote more than 80 books, including such titles as CITIZEN TOM PAINE (1943), the best-selling FREEDOM ROAD (1944), and SPARTACUS (1953). Fast joined the Communist Party in 1943--a reaction to his impoverished New York City childhood; he was blacklisted and ended up serving time in a federal prison in 1950, convicted of contempt of Congress when he refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. (Disillusioned by Stalin, he left the party in 1956.) In addition to his popular novels, Fast also wrote mysteries (under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham) about a Japanese Zen Buddhist who is also a detective in Beverly Hills. His last novel, GREENWICH (set in the Connecticut town where Fast himself lived) was published in 2000.

Praise

Best Sellers
"By sketching rather than probing in depth the characters and their relationships to each other, by keeping the dialogues and the descriptions simple, Mr. Fast moves his story at a deceptively simple pace, as if the event being recorded demands no dramatic exposition. The effect of this understatement is to draw the story from its historical setting and gently prod the reader to reflect on human motivation, institutional codes, religious prejudices, and those dark areas of fear and hatred within men which manifest themselves in time of war and stress." - Terrence A. McVeigh 09/15/72

Library Journal
"Fast is always a wonderful storyteller, and the story is a good one." - D. C. Taylor August 1972
