From the Publisher"Feminism, the Left, and Postwar Literary Culture displays a sharp grasp of racial, class, and gender dynamics in the 1950s and does much to reveal hitherto under-considered connections between women's radicalism most often associated with the Old Left of the 1930s and 1940s and the Black Power and Black Arts upsurge of the 1960s and 1970s. ...It will be an important addition to women's studies, literary studies, and the historical sub-fields of U.S. radicalism and of the feminist movement."
—James Smethurst, Associate Professor, W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherstof Massachusetts, Amherst
"Kathlene McDonald provides a wonderfully informative and provocative portrait of radical women writers after World War II. Her meditation on the paradoxes of an emerging feminist consciousness opens up new intellectual vistas through a lucid and well-organized inquiry that is both engrossing and convincing."
—Alan M. Wald, author of Trinity of Passion: The Literary Left and the Anti-Fascist Crusade
