A Paler Shade of Red: Memoirs of a Radical

0 Reviews

An epic work of remarkable scope, vigor and passion, W. E. Gutman's latest book is acerbic, iconoclastic and disquieting. In this memoir, he chronicles his life with eloquent, engaging prose that will resonate with readers long after they turn the last page. The palpable sense of wonder and discovery peppered with dark humor and great humanity, is reminiscent of Nabokov's "Speak Memory" and Proust's "Remembrance of Things Past." This honest, often self-critical account of the author's ups and downs as a wanderer and journalist makes "A Paler Shade of Red" great literature.
