Penguin Putnam
Anarchist, journalist, drama critic, advocate of birth control and free love, Emma Goldman was the most famous—and notorious—woman in the early twentieth century. This abridged version of her two-volume autobiography takes her from her birthplace in czarist Russia to the socialist enclaves of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Against a dramatic backdrop of political argument, show trials, imprisonment, and tempestuous romances, Goldman chronicles the epoch that she helped shape: the reform movements of the Progressive Era, the early years of and later disillusionment with Lenin’s Bolshevik experiment, and more. Sounding a call still heard today, Living My Life is a riveting account of political ferment and ideological turbulence.
  • First time in Penguin Classics

Baker & Taylor

Blackwell North Amer
Anarchist, political orator, drama critic, theorist of revolution, advocate of birth control and free love, Emma Goldman claimed her life was woven of many "skeins." Laboring in the service of her "beautiful ideal" - anarchism, a vision of human communities free of the restraints and ills of government - she advocated just as tirelessly for the freedom to love and know beauty. This condensation of her two-volume autobiography takes her from her birthplace in czarist Russia to the socialist enclaves of Manhattan's Lower East Side. Against a backdrop of political argument, show trials, imprisonment, and tempestuous romances, Goldman chronicles the tumultuous Progressive Era and offers fascinating firsthand impressions of Lenin, Trotsky, Kropotkin, Jack London, and many other radicals of the period. An account of ideological ferment, Living My Life stands as a testament to a turbulent time and a clarion call to something forgotten in our own.
