In his introduction, Wills explains that the environment of distrust was put in motion by President Harry S.

After the House began its inquiries, Joseph McCarthy got on the bandwagon in the Senate and propelled further investigations and ultimately began bringing charges.

Connect with us. She became a writer at a time when writers were celebrities and their recklessness was admirable. Like Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Faulkner, and Hammett, Lillian Hellman was a smoker, a drinker, a lover, and a fighter. Hellman maintained a social and political life as large and restless as her talent.

The distinguished playwright and memoirist recounts the intrusion of congressional and other witch-hunters, Red-baiters, and ideologues into her and Dashiell Hammett's lives in the 1950s and the losses and discomforts suffered

I always been intrigued with this controversy but have concluded that it is difficult to understand the issue without having lived at that time as so many questioned capitalism after the depression. So receiving a first hand account by someone blacklisted, and particularly such a renown writer as Lillian Hellman, provides a very interesting perspective. This had a lasting effect on her and it is highlighted in the discussion of the farm that she would be required to sell as their income (her companion Dash Hammett who did serve time for his testimony) would dry up. Yes, this rambles as she discusses the effect of her testimony on the remainder if her life. But along with the Ring Lardner book I consider this the definitive first hand account of the HUAC committee and this terrible time in American political intimidation. I encourage you to read this book if you have interest in American politics,in the 40s and 50s and the paranoia of communism in America.

I bought this book for a Cold War upperdivision class in college and am glad that I did.
