DEATH MY GENERATION

A voluble- to violent- personal history of a young man who changed countries- and opinions- frequently, who made the best of some rather bad circumstances, and who eventually- during this war- settled down and found a certain social conscience to replace his self-concern. With the Russian nobility, the American puritans, as a dual, dualistic heritage, Fyodrov left Russia with his mother during the Revolution, came to America. Disliking the New York public school and street education Mike was getting, she sent him to Paris, where he studied, eventually went to work. Odd jobs took him to England, then to Germany where for a time he was for the Nazis, then England again where he became a Left-Wing Communist organizer... A very frank record of a restless, sometimes ruthless young man, at times opportunistic, at times parasitic, but now reformed. The market, particularly with the political point of view, seems limited.
