Overview

Power: A Novel by Howard Fast

Howard Fast’s thrilling story of Benjamin Holt, mineworker and hero of the modern labor movement
Benjamin R. Holt, the tough-as-nails leader of the International Miners Union, has a grand and controversial plan: to unite American coal miners in a major strike. His goal is not to advance any political cause, but simply to grab as much power as he can for the miners, and by any means necessary. Based on the life story of John L. Lewis, who for forty years served as president of the United Mine Workers of America, Power is an unforgettable portrait of one man whose courage changed the lives of countless others. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

About the Author

Howard Fast (1914–2003) was one of the most prolific American writers of the twentieth century. He was a bestselling author of more than eighty works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and screenplays. The son of immigrants, Fast grew up in New York City and published his first novel upon finishing high school in 1933. In 1950, his refusal to provide the United States Congress with a list of possible Communist associates earned him a three-month prison sentence. During his incarceration, Fast wrote one of his best-known novels, Spartacus (1951). Throughout his long career, Fast matched his commitment to championing social justice in his writing with a deft, lively storytelling style.
