Abstract:

"An intimate portrait of one of the most fascinating and complex history-makers of our century, Run Run Run intertwines the details of Abbie Hoffman's intense personal life, as told by his brother, Jack, with the dramatic politics of the sixties, seventies, and eighties. From the creation of the Yippies! in 1967, the tumult of the 1968 Democratic National Convention protests, the humor and agony of the Chicago conspiracy trial, the scandal of Abbie's 1973 cocaine bust and his six and a half years as a fugitive, to the emergence of his alter ego, environmentalist Barry Freed, and Abbie's final struggle with manic-depressive illness, this brother's biography offers a compelling examination of the contradictions that make Abbie Hoffman such a fascinating figure." "Run Run Run is also the story of the Hoffman family and how Abbie and Jack's relationship survived the twists and turns of the one's celebrity. From early childhood until the day before his death, Abbie talked to, called, wrote, cabled, telexed, taught, and pestered his kid brother almost daily. With the information and affection only a brother could bring to the complexities of Abbie's life, Jack Hoffman, together with Daniel Simon, sets Abbie's public persona alongside a picture of his private aspirations and fears, romances and lasting loves, and enduring family relationships."--BOOK JACKET.
