Poet, activist, and feminist, Catherine Macleod has produced a passionate memoir confronting the controversies that have defined her generation. Along the way, she evokes the demons and ideas that have marked her personal passage. Infusing her prose with the feminist wit that Michele Landsberg has observed in her poetry, Macleod brings her working-class perspective to bear on the politics of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, and the survival tactics of self-respect, spirituality, and recovery.
A wry articulate, unsparingly and often poignant story.
