In old age, a political firebrand looks back at a life filled with social and political turmoil Samuel Lumen has reached the hearts of millions with his fearless advocacy for liberal causes. Now hea€™s almost ninety years old, and the ideas he espoused as a young man, radical at the time, are woven into the political landscape of America, even as theya€™ve been warped and diluted by younger generations. His ideological heirs want to honor his contributions with a banquet full of pomp and circumstance, but Lumena€™s not so sure hea€™s ready to honor his heirs in return. Told through Lumena€™s diary entries, Celebration recounts his rich life, filled with achievement, disappointment, and an ever-growing awareness of the costs of restless radicalism. Published posthumously, Celebration is a fitting capstone to Swadosa€™s legendary career as a novelist and critic, and is an unforgettable look at the intersection of memory, nostalgia, and histories both personal and political.... the literature of labor. He also penned various collections of nonfiction, including A Radicala#39;s America. Swadosa#39;s 1959 essay for Esquire, a€œWhy Resign from the Human Race?, a€ is often credited with inspiring the formation of the Peace Corps.
