About the Author

CATHY WILKERSON was active in the civil rights movement, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Weathermen. In 1970, she was one of two women to survive an explosion in the basement of her family's townhouse that killed three Weathermen, forcing the group underground. For the past twenty years she has worked as a mathematics educator in New York City schools.

Reviews

"Unsparingly maps the idealism, fanaticism, moral absolutism and personal passions that carried her to the townhouse [explosion]." -The New York Times


"Clear-sighted, self-critical yet unapologetic account." -The Los Angeles Times
