Silas Timberman

(1954)
A novel by

 
As the Red Scare grips America, a midwestern literature professor becomes an unlikely hero in the struggle for freedom


Professor Silas Timberman has never been one for theatrics. A quiet American literature professor at a mid-sized college, Timberman decides to build a semester's course around the democratic ideals of Mark Twain - a subject that under normal circumstances would not arouse the suspicions of the university administration. But as the Korean War rages on and congressional investigations of potential Communists gain traction, no amount of ideological nuance is safe. When Timberman is asked to renounce his work or face the repercussions, he finds that not only his tenure but also his very freedom is at stake.
 
Inspired by Fast's own persecution at the hands of the House Un-American Activities Committee, Silas Timberman is a gripping record of the injustices of McCarthyism and a rousing ode to those who fought against it.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
