Pressestimmen"Covers enormous ground and effectively reflects the vastness of Polonsky's career and personal life."-Variety "Abe Polonsky was fascinating, brilliant, mercurial, a giant of our time. He held the line against McCarthyism in all its forms and phases all his life. He did it with vigor and the joy of fighting for right. His history is the best of the left. As a man he was charming, amusing, concerned-a great listener and a greater raconteur, and an even better friend. This much needed book is a tribute to him."-Lee Grant, Oscar-winning director/actress
