The audio edition of Hellman's work is timely, given current debates on civil liberties in the face of threats to our national security. This last installment in Hellman's memoirs focuses on her experiences, and those of her friends and acquaintances, during the McCarthy era, including her defiance of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Kate Reading's understated narration captures Hellman's spirit as she goes up against the self-designated protectors of democracy. Her strong, no-nonsense style is a good fit for the feisty and controversial Hellman. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
