Stories of courage against oppression by one of
twentieth-century America's most fearless writers
These nineteen stories follow the paths of men and women,
immigrants, minorities, and the poor, suffering from injustice and
inequality. Written in the 1940s, Fast's clear-eyed and lively
tales examine a world reeling from war and plagued by social
unrest. With stories set in New York City, Europe, and India, this
collection shares a remarkable global vision. Written during the
rising Communist scare, Departure is a defiantly leftist
portrait of a complex and ever-changing world.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast
including rare photos from the author's estate.
