Abstract:

Bob Avakian has written a memoir containing three unique but interwoven stories. The first tells of a white middle-class kid growing up in 1950s America who goes to an integrated high school and has his world turned around; the second of a young man who overcomes a near-fatal disease and jumps with both feet into the heady swirl of Berkeley in the sixties; and the third of a radical activist who matures into a tempered revolutionary communist leader. If you think about the past or if you urgently care about the future ... if you want to hear a unique voice of utter realism and deep humanity ... and if you dare to have your assumptions challenged and your stereotypes overturned ... then take a look at this book.--From publisher description.
