Abstract:

Christina Stead & rsquo;s unforgettable final novel & mdash;a profound examination of love and radicalism during the McCarthy era In the wake of the Great Depression, Emily Wilkes, a young American journalist, travels to a Europe still scarred by World War I. During her crossing, she meets Stephen Howard, a charismatic and wealthy Communist who quickly converts Emily to his ideals when the two become lovers. Upon their return to the States, they marry and settle into a comfortable life in Hollywood as darlings of the American left. Emily shines as a screenwriter and novelist while Stephen dedicates himself to the Party line & mdash;but their radicalism soon finds them out of favor and retreating to Paris, where they tragically and bitterly unravel. Published posthumously by Christina Stead & rsquo;s literary executor professor Ron Geering, I & rsquo;m Dying Laughing is an unflinching look at political faith and romantic attachment.
