Mary McCarthy vividly recalls her early years in New York before she began writing novels and stories. At that time, she wrote reviews for the Nation and the New Republic, was active in the American Communist Party, and was married to activist actor/playwright Harold Johnsrud. Foreword by Elizabeth Hardwick.
Belletrist McCarthy died in 1989, before she was able to complete the last installment of this autobiographical work. She did finish a significant portion, which covers her years in New York from 1936 to 1938. With a substantial (15 pp.) foreword by Elizabeth Hardwick. Annotation c.
