Description
(Finalist for the 2011 National Jewish Book Award for Biography, Autobiography, and Memoir) "A handful of radicals throughout the centuries have intuited that a successful revolution includes a healthy passion for the inner life. One of them was the anarchist Emma Goldman," writes Vivian Gornick in her introduction to this concise yet powerful portrait. Born in 1869 to an Orthodox Jewish family in what is now Lithuania, Goldman remains one of the most memorable political figures of the 20th century, not because of her gift for theory or analysis or even strategy, but because some extraordinary force of life in her burned, without rest or respite, on behalf of human integrity.

"With wit and insight, Gornick urges readers to feel what Goldman felt, to ponder what made her kick against conditions that her contemporaries meekly accepted, and to ask whether things are so different today."—Publishers Weekly

"Gornick offers a surprisingly nuanced account of Goldman's political dilemmas.... What's truly haunting is the way Gornick shows us a woman ahead of her times—maybe even ahead of our times."—Jewish Book Council
