Synopsis: Folsom, executive secretary to the League of American Writers for five of its seven years, offers a lively history of the controversial anti-facist organization that the FBI considered a "Communist front." The League sought to promote intellectual and political freedom through national writers congresses, and attempted to rescue anti-Nazi colleagues in European concentration camps. Folsom uses personal anecdotes, League records and FBI files to create a portrait of the group, its many renowned members, such as Richard Wright and Dorothy Parker, and its role in American cultural and social history. Includes b&w photos. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal: Both scrapbook and memoir, Folsom's book on the League of American Writers (LAW) documents the short life of the Communist-guided organization for which he served as executive secretary. LAW opposed Spanish fascism, supported writers exiled by the Nazis, and sponsored congresses, workshops, and publications. The writers' ideals balanced shakily with party agenda, an equation calmly analyzed at a 50-year distance by Folsom, the author of many children's books and, more recently, Impatient Armies of the Poor (Univ. Pr. of Colorado, 1991). Folsom offers fragments of recollection on famous members like Edmund Wilson and Richard Wright, but the book will appeal most to specialists.
