|Plot Summary of An Autobiographical Novel|
|"Rexroth's autobiography takes him up to the period of his marriage and his settling in San Francisco which is not dated in the book, but since he does talk about the Sacco Vanzetti trial, it does give some sense of the time. He describes a wandering youth where he bummed around the country in a variety of jobs--cook, cowboy, soapbox orator, painter, poet, and radical organizer. In general he led a very Bohemian life style running around with lots of girls and spending a good deal of time in talk about politics, art and the meaning of life."
Jack Goodstein, Resident Scholar
