What an amazing life! And I'm only have way through! This is an incredible read. What strikes me is that in my encounters with people talking about Emma Goldman--people who haven't read her actual work or those that simply repeat what they have heard from others--is how she is usually cornered into one essential archetype; what I love about reading these volumes is running into the contradictions and the consistencies in her own work and life and how not even Emma Goldman was a perfect human. Otherwise, it's an incredible history and has given me some incredible insight. Anyone who tells you Emma hated Rochester, NY hasn't read this autobiography. I highly recommend this work!
