Written in prose that would make Strunk and White proud, Cowley offers an elegy for the Communist dream.

Communism has always presented as the opposite of Capitalism, a critique of the only system I've known. This is the story of how a relatively normal guy from Pittsburgh got caught up in revolutionary fervor. It's a political story you never hear. Biographies are full of Stalins and Roosevelts, not the adherents or just casual supporters.
