Description
Radio actor Iron Rinn (born Ira Ringold) is a big Newark roughneck blighted by a brutal personal secret from which he is perpetually in flight. An idealistic Communist, a self-educated ditchdigger turned popular performer, a six-foot six-inch Abe Lincoln look-alike, he marries the nation's reigning radio actress and beloved silent-film star, the exquisite Eve Frame (born Chava Fromkin). Their marriage evolves from a glamorous, romantic idyll into a dispiriting soap opera of tears and treachery. And with Eve's dramatic revelation to the gossip columnist Bryden Grant of her husband's life of "espionage" for the Soviet Union, the relationship enlarges from private drama into national scandal. Set in the heart of the McCarthy era, the story of Iron Rinn's denunciation and disgrace brings to harrowing life the human drama that was central to the nation's political tribulations in the dark years of betrayal, the blacklist, and naming names. I Married a Communist is an American tragedy as only Philip Roth could write it.

Private needs and public acts are inextricably joined... with disastrous consequences. Iron Rinn (born Ira Ringold): Newark roughneck, radio actor, idealistic Communist, and educated ditch digger turned popular performer. A six-foot, six-inch Abe Lincoln look-alike, he 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. His life is in ruins. On his way to political catastrophe he marries the nation's reigning radio actress and beloved silent film star, Even 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 Briden 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 Philip Roth can conceive-fierce and funny, eloquently rendered, and deadly accurate.
