Synopsis:
El libro de Daniel, escrita en 1971, fue llevada al cine en 1983. Refiere el caso de espionaje del matrimonio de Julius y Ethel Rosenberg, ejecutados en 1953 por pasar secretos militares a Rusia. La figura central del libro es el hijo de esta pareja, Daniel Isaacson, y muestra todos esos terribles y hermosos sentimientos de la niñez, a la vez que una profunda reflexion acerca de la culpa y la inocencia. / The central figure of this novel is a young man whose parents were executed for conspiring to steal atomic secrets for Russia. His name is Daniel Isaacson, and as the story opens, his parents have been dead for many years. He has had a long time to adjust to their deaths. He has not adjusted. Out of the shambles of his childhood, he has constructed a new lifemarriage to an adoring girl who gives him a son of his own, and a career in scholarship. It is a life that enrages him. In the silence of the library at Columbia University, where he is supposedly writing a Ph.D. dissertation, Daniel composes something quite different. It is a confession of his most intimate relationshipswith his wife, his foster parents, and his kid sister Susan, whose own radicalism so reproaches him. It is a book rich in characters, from elderly grand- mothers of immigrant culture, to covert radicals of the McCarthy era, to hippie marchers on the Pentagon. It is a book that spans the quarter-century of American life since World War II, about the nature of Left politics in this countryits sacrificial rites, its peculiar cruelties, its humility, its bitterness. It is a book about some of the beautiful and terrible feelings of childhood. It is about the nature of guilt and innocence, and about the relations of people to nations.
