    I bought this book even though I have no real interest in American history or macarthiasm, but purely on the basis that one of the Hammett collections I have has an amazing introduction by Hellman and she sounded like a very interesting woman. This short book is about her dealings with the anti-american hearings in 1952 and how it affected her life, and to a lesser extent Hammett's life. It was an interesting snap shot of the time. Sad to see how much control the people at the hearings had, the fact that they made it next to impossible for them to get passports or leave the country, the fact that they put many people out of work I already knew. It was an interesting and honest personal account. I liked the small glimpse into someone's life. Even if it was a person I didn't know very well I enjoyed the way she wrote and what she was talking about. I felt most sorry for Hammett. Though Hellman's story was also quite sad. If I come across any of her other books I think I will be reading them as well.
