    Emma Goldman (1869–1940) came to America from Russia when she was sixteen. As a political activist, publisher, lecturer, and writer, she was a central figure in the radical social movements of her age.


    Miriam Brody has written biographies of Mary Wollstonecraft and Victoria Woodhull.

    Anarchist, journalist, drama critic, advocate of birth control and free love, Emma Goldman was the most famous—and notorious—woman in the early twentieth century. This abridged version of her two-volume autobiography takes her from her birthplace in czarist Russia to the socialist enclaves of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Against a dramatic backdrop of political argument, show trials, imprisonment, and tempestuous romances, Goldman chronicles the epoch that she helped shape: the reform movements of the Progressive Era, the early years of and later disillusionment with Lenin’s Bolshevik experiment, and more. Sounding a call still heard today,Living My Life is a riveting account of political ferment and ideological turbulence.

    • First time in Penguin Classics
    • Condensed to half the length of Goldman's original work, this edition is accessible to those interested in the activist and her extraordinary era
