I will be writing my own reflections on Frank who I knew since 1977 or 
so when we were both in the Chelsea branch of the SWP. I picked up a 
copy of his recently published memoir 
(http://www.fupress.com/catalogo/through-partisan-eyes/2733) that I will 
be discussing in the article as well as my take on his legacy. A very 
fine comrade and scholar.
