Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Dustwrapper

First edition, in the publisher's original cloth binding, with the original, unclipped dust wrapper.

Inscribed by the author to the title page, to fellow writer Stephen Vizinczey and his wife.

This autobiographical work presents the life of Senator Eugene McCarthy, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1949 to 1959 and the Senate from 1959 to 1971. This memoir was written seventeen years after leaving the Senate, presenting McCarthy's reflections on American Politics.

With an essay on 'Standards and Guides for Picking Presidential Candidates' and a poem by Eugene J. McCarthy, loosely inserted.

From the library of Hungarian-Canadian author Stephen Vizinczey, best known for his 'In Praise of Older Women', and 'An Innocent Millionaire'. His writing was praised by the likes of Graham Greene and Anthony Burgess, describing his fiction as social epics which breathe hope in a corrupt world.
