Date: Tuesday, April 23, 4-6pm
Author: Alan Wald
Title: "Exiles from a Future Time: The Forging of the Mid-Twentieth-Century
Literary Left"

With this book, Alan Wald launches a bold and passionate account of the
U.S. Literary Left from the 1920s through the 1960s. "Exiles from a Future
Time," the first volume of a trilogy, focuses on the forging of a
Communist-led literary tradition in the 1930s.

Focusing on the formation of the Cultural Left, Wald investigates the
"elective affinity" of its avant-garde poets, the "Afro-cosmopolitanism" of
its Black radical literary movement, and the uneasy negotiation between
feminist concerns and class identity among its women writers.

Alan Wald is director of the Program in American Culture and Professor of
English at the University of Michigan. His previous books include "The New
York Intellectuals," "The Revolutionary Imagination," "Writing from the
Left," "James T. Farrell: The Revolutionary Socialist Years," and "The
Responsibility of Intellectuals."
