Library JournalIn April 1954 Fried, called to testify before the Committee on Un-American activities, challenged the committee's constitutional right to exist. This is the story of that challenge, of the personal struggle that preceded it, and of the results. The story is compelling. Unfortunately, the book suffers from repetitive phrases and explanations, which interrupt the flow of the story. Cliches abound, and captions under photographs are awkward, often using the real names of people who appear in the novel under fictitious names. The story deserves better, and we have a right to expect better from a noted playwright and winner of the 1991 ``Individual Artist Award'' for lifetime contribution to the arts.-- Marcia Dorey, Northwest Missouri State Univ. Lib., Maryville
