A Chronicle of Fredy Perlman's Fifty Years
A poignant and touching biography of noted writer, theorist, and publisher Fredy Perlman by Lorraine, his life partner, co-producer, and co-author.
Whether you're already a fan of Perlman (either one or both), and want the inside scoop on some of the titles produced by this couple (particularly Letters of Insurgence), or just someone who appreciates an inspirational life story (Fredy packed a ton of experience into his tragically brief life, including continent-spanning travel, participation in Paris in May '68, and starting Fifth Estate, the oldest running anarchist publication in the u.s.), this biography is a delight.
