New News from Osha Neumann

Up Against the Wall, Motherf**ker cover

I am reading Osha Neumann‘s new book.  It is a fascinating and gripping memoir of his time as a 1960s anarchist in New York City.  I’ll update this entry as I digest it (and when I am more awake – I worked 90 clinical hours from Sat-Fri, slept three hours before Yoyo’s sixth birthday party, and now I am back at work), but I can already say: read it.

The 60s has quite a grip on our imagination.  One thing I have had trouble reconciling is the divergent threads of hippie vs ?????? ?????free speech activist.
