OPEN EVERY DOOR by Zelda Popkin


Email this review


An unusual autobiography of an unusual woman -- this reads as a composite of experience which at one point or another will strike fire with her readers. A very honest sharing of emotional experience- the sensory experiences and memories of childhood; the ""fears involved in assignment to a Job too big for her training; the driving force that spurred her ambition, that made her forge through to her goal, time and again; the depth of emotional experience in falling in love, in complete identification in a happy marriage, in facing the desolation of death, in remaking of life, in testing the capacities of her own ""emotional bank""; the painful learning not to hate; the trial and error process of determining where her roots belong -- all this adds up to a full growth in living. This is a story of a liberal who dared fight for causes in which she believed. It is a story that compasses journalism, public relations and their concomitants in human adventure, social factors, politics, war and the recurrent challenge and excitement of forging new approaches to life and meeting each challenge head on.
