As resonant and unique today as it was when first published, Daughter of Earth is a gritty and sweeping semiautobiographical novel about growing up in rural, early twentieth century America. Ground-breaking in its portrayal of sexism within the leftist movement, the novel painstakingly recounts a life of double standards of race and sex amongst East Coast intellectuals; facing false espionage charges; and maintaining independence through two tormented marriages.
