Book Description

This epic story is fueled with intense commitment and sensuousness.
LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW
Vida was their star--the beautiful, charismatic radical from the pages of LIFE magazine--the symbol of the passionate rebellion of the sixties. Now, ten years later, the shouting is over, but Vida is still on the run. Staying in Network hideouts, traveling disguised, fearing every glance, she finds her best protection is her distrust of everyone--a lesson learned from past treacheries. And now, knowing the dangers, she finds herself warming again toward a man, an outcast ten years younger than herself.

    I loved this book. It was an emotional rollercoaster and the Marxism-Leninism and misogyny of many of the characters was infuriating and it was such an intense picture of life in clandestinity. Goddamn this book is so good.

    I adored this book. Marge Piercy has captured the lives of those involved with politics in the sixties, including tough dialogs which confront the ideology of "free love" and "community" in practice.

    "'But he's miserable,' Jimmy had said. 'Under it all, it hurts him. Why can't you make it up?'
    'No!' she had said to Jimmy. 'I don't want him that way.'
    'For the group,' Jimmy Pleaded.
    'I am not a thing to be given to him to keep him happy. I will not fuck him for political reasons.' Her bluntness had shut Jimmy up."

    The entanglement of family, love, life and "life underground" are brought to the front of this novel. Piercy evocatively captures the difficulty of living on the outside of culture expectations.
