Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A remarkable work of oral history [and] a fond, provocative testament to a remarkable life."*
 
“A fabulous read about a breed of politician now largely extinct . . . Levine and Thom have crafted a history that brings to life one of the great political personalities of the twentieth century.”
—ALICE ECHOLS, Bookforum

“Incorporates . . . interviews with excerpts from the influential feminists unpublished memoirs to create a kind of conversation about the woman, the politician and the times in which she lived.”
—*SUSAN SALTER REYNOLDS, Los Angeles Times

“Abzug was certainly a major player in our change in attitudes in the second part of the past century [and] Suzanne Braun Levine and Mary Thom give us a fascinating glimpse into [an] inspirational but undeniably peculiar period that is receding, all too quickly, into the past.”
—CAROLYN SEE, The Washington Post

“[A] fluid, sharply edited book . . . Abzug was a force of nature, and the stories about her are consistently feisty.”—JON DOLAN, Time Out New York

“Explodes with the energy that Bella Abzug possessed.” —DONNA BRAZILE
