Departure

(1949)
A collection of stories by

 
Stories of courage against oppression by one of twentieth-century America's most fearless writers

These nineteen stories follow the paths of men and women, immigrants, minorities, and the poor, suffering from injustice and inequality. Written in the 1940s, Fast's clear-eyed and lively tales examine a world reeling from war and plagued by social unrest. With stories set in New York City, Europe, and India, this collection shares a remarkable global vision. Written during the rising Communist scare, Departure is a defiantly leftist portrait of a complex and ever-changing world.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
