Plain Radical

by Robert Jensen

If at the beginning of Plain Radical you wonder what kind of book you’re reading, in the middle you’ll be nodding your head in agreement, and by the end you may be shedding a tear or two. A mix of memoir, manifesto and eulogy, it uses a cross-generational friendship as a through-line to explore the compelling social justice issues of our day… Within the Upper Midwest’s tradition of social progressiveness, Plain Radical is a touching and important record of the debts owed by one generation to another — the baby boomers to the Silent Generation — as embodied in Jensen and Koplin. — Minneapolis Star Tribune
