The poet's newly discovered novel of reporting on the Spanish Civil War ';is both an absorbing read and an important contribution to 20th-century history' (Publishers Weekly).

As a young reporter in 1936, the pioneering poet and political activist Muriel Rukeyser traveled to Barcelona to witness the first days of the Spanish Civil War. She turned this experience into an autobiographical novel so forward thinkingboth in its lyrical prose and its frank depictions of violence and sexualitythat it was never published in her lifetime. Recently discovered in her archive, Feminist Press finally makes this important work available to the public.

Savage Coast charts a young American woman's political and sexual awakening as she witnesses the popular front resistance to the fascist coup and falls in love with a German political exile who joins the first international brigade. Rukeyser's narrative is a modernist exploration of violence, activism, and desire; a documentary text detailing the start of the war; and a testimony to those who fought and died for freedom and justice during the first major battle against European fascism.
