Bella Abzug


Author: Levine, Suzanne Braun / Thom, Mary (EDT)
ISBN: 9780374531492 Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux

"A remarkable work of oral history [and] a fond, provocative testament to a remarkable life."*

ÒA 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.Ó


ÒIncorporates . . . interviews with excerpts from the influential feministÕs unpublished memoirs to create a kind of conversation about the woman, the politician and the times in which she lived.Ó


ÒAbzug 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.Ó

ÑCAROLYN SEE, The Washington Post

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

ÒExplodes with the energy that Bella Abzug possessed.Ó ÑDONNA BRAZILE
