Murray Kempton, David Remnick (Introduction):
Part of Our Time: Some Ruins and Monuments of the Thirties - new book

ISBN: 9781590175446

First published in 1955, Part of Our Time consists of ten incomparable "novellas" that profile individuals whose lives were transformed by the radical movements of the thirties. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Murray Kempton writes of people who "shared at one time or another the conviction that the most important thing in life was a remorseless effort to throw down the society which had raised and alienated most of them." Included are portraits of Alger Hiss and Whittaker Chambers, Walter Reu-ther, Lee Pressman, Paul Robeson, Edmund Wilson, and James T. Farrell; the writers of the Hollywood left; as well as many now-forgotten labor leaders, politicians, and mobsters—all of whom were caught up in what the author calls "the myth of the thirties." "Part of Our Time is a striking piece of work," said The New Yorker. "Kempton is a journalist of formidable talent and versatility. He can be serious, he can be funny, he can be evocative. Every phase of life interests him, and he has a novelist's sense of character and change. . . . He is a remarkably rewarding writer, and journalism and political criticism are lucky to have him."                 The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions ofimpor-tant works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoringas its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhardin 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating EBooks Books ~~ History~~ Essays Part-of-Our-Time~~Murray-Kempton New York Review Books
