Reviews
"For nearly four decades, Rossanda has been Manifesto's most individual editorialist and commentator ... a unique signature in the Italian press."
--New Left Review

"One of the most interesting works on the legacy of twentieth-century communism. For Rossanda, a partisan and communist to the last, the past was neither to be glorified nor taken as old hat--rather, it had to be understood in all its depth, with a view to the difficulty of real choices and the reasons for the paths not taken."
--David Broder, Jacobin

"The Italian Communist leadership of the generation of 1943-45 is exceptional: it has been described with wonderful skill in Rossana Rossanda's autobiography."
--Eric Hobsbawm, London Review of Books

"Rossanda's autobiography is the best book of the year."
--La Stampa

"Honest and painful ... party, relationships, victories and, most of all, defeats compose a memorable fresco and a precious testimony."
--La Repubblica

"A beautiful book, full of poetic pages, written in an elegant and evocative Italian reminiscent of Natalia Ginzburg."
--Corriere della Sera
