Details

Bendetti's narrative is both vigorous and engrossing. Presenting Albert and Lucy Parsons' stories in fictional style, he uses documents, biographic materials, court records, and first person accounts to recreate dialog and action that is history—a history that is swiftly paced and alive with all the drama of frantic real life.
