About This Item

New York: International Publishers, 1948. First Edition. First Printing, cloth issue. Octavo (20cm); orange cloth, with titles stamped in black on spine; dustjacket; [8],9-250,[6]pp. Clean and unmarked in original pictorial dustwrapper, unclipped and generally clean but for a moisture stain extending halfway up the rear flap-fold; this had bled through to cause a faint line of discoloration to fore-edge of rear board. Very Good. Fictionalized biography of a worker-radical in the National Maritime Union. "...written as vigorously as [its] central characters lived, but in almost all other ways...quite lacking in the art of the novel" (Rideout, p.267). Still, very representative of the post-war Communist literary aesthetic, and uncommon in such nice condition. The authors - she a Daily Worker reporter and he a waterfront strike organizer - met and married during the maritime strike of 1936-37. RIDEOUT p.267. HANNA 2592. SEIDMAN M196.
