9780060926267: Un-American Activities: A Memoir of the Fifties

Un-American Activities is the story of Sally Belfrage's desperate, and often desperately funny, attempt to be conventional in the fifties. Sally had the basic equipment (blond hair, blue eyes), but attending a largely Jewish school, with her father - Cedric Belfrage, editor of the National Guardian - under attack from Joe McCarthy, and with her parents, both English, under constant threat of deportation, she was the ultimate misfit.

Belfrage's memoir is an enormously affecting father-daughter story as well as a lively portrait of the fifties as seen through teenage eyes, from the Bomb to bobby sox, from the Rosenberg case to the poodle skirt.
