NEARLY 80 YEARS AGO, one of the sweetest books in the history of 
American radicalism appeared: Art Young: His Life and Times. A wonderful 
memoir in every sense, it encompassed and expressed the beloved 
socialist artist’s saga, from Midwestern small-town boy suspicious of 
radicals to the greatest of all radical cartoonists in the English 
language. He hated the spoils of capitalism and war with a ferocity 
scarcely to be equaled in art anywhere, Picasso or John Heartfield or 
Spain Rodriguez notwithstanding.
