Description

Iron Rinn, born Ira Ringold, is a Newark roughneck, radio actor, idealistic Communist, and educated ditchdigger turned popular performer. Rinn emerges from serving in World War II passionately committed to making the world a better place and instead winds up blacklisted, unemployable, and blighted by a brutal personal secret from which he is perpetually in flight. On his way to political catastrophe he marries the nation's reigning radio actress and beloved silent film star, Eve Frame, born Chava Fromkin. Their marriage evolves from a glamorous, romantic idyll to a dispiriting soap opera of tears and treachery. Eve's dramatic revelation to gossip columnist Bryden Grant of her husband's life of "espionage" for the Soviet Union soon spirals their relationship from private drama into national scandal. I Married a Communist is an American tragedy as only Pulitzer Prize-winning author Philip Roth can conceive - fierce and funny, eloquently rendered, and deadly accurate.
