Isn’t organizing writers like herding cats?
Thanks, Juliana, for introducing me to this platform. And to the knowledge that there are writers today tackling the theme of activism and activists as characters. I've been translating the work of Alvaro Cunhal (pen name Manuel Tiago) who did exactly that in the context of the Portuguese struggle against fascism. Those 8 books are all available from International Publishers. I'd recommend the latest (and last) in the series, "Until Tomorrow, Comrades," as the most finely etched treatment of a small cadre of Communist organizers and how they live, operate, win (and sometimes lose). Thanks again.
