Savage Coast

by: Muriel Rukeyser

Publisher: feminist press at CUNY (2013)


Staff Pick by comrade:

An autobiographical novel about the Spanish Civil War that was so forward thinking it was initially rejected by publishers in 1936. "At first, Savage Coast is a train-of-fools comedy; later, it's a cross-cultural love story Hemingway would have envied for its suddenness." - NYT book review
