"The focal point of Dennis's autobiography is a stoicism of personal survival. Writing from the perspective of the mid-1970s, she helps another generation of radical women understand the situation of women in the Old Left, particularly the overwhelming personal isolation caused by the absence of a women's movement. As Dennis admits, the Communist Party made few provisions for a woman who hoped to be both a wife and activist." *Buhle 285.
