Praise for The Half Life of a Free Radical
“First and foremost this is an entertaining tale of childhood and adolescence told with great humor, honesty, and empathy.  But it’s also told by someone who became a peace and justice and environmentalist activist in later life, someone able to look back on the poverty, racism, militarism, sexism, and Catholicism of her youth with passion and perspective…” David Swanson, author of War is a Lie
