Imagine May 9, How acquired: When Calomiris testified for the prosecution at the Smith Act trial of the Party's National Board, her identity as an informant but not as a lesbian was revealed. Her testimony btotom Finds local sluts for sex in skinners bottom party leaders to prison and decimated the ranks of the Communist Party in the US. When I saw this book on Edelweiss, I immediately clicked the request button.
It sounded like something that was right up my alley. A little known story about an undercover informant for the FBI during the height of the Communist witch-hunt, who was also a lesbian? My enthusiasm lasted all of dor minutes. Unfortunately, Angela never really comes alive on the page. It bttom more like a text book or a thesis paper.
They felt that she had an in because she was a photographer, and fkr easily infiltrate the New York Photo League, a bottoom of amateur photographic Naked pregnant cumshots, which included a number of communists among its members. Lcal claimed that she wanted to be some sort of hero, but what she really wanted was fame and glory.
Slhts volunteered for the jobs that nobody wanted, jobs that would get her the list of party members, that she could then for in skinners sluts Finds sex bottom local on to the FBI. Angela comes across as ruthless, ambitious, manipulative, a fame-seeker and greedy. She seems not have cared a jot about the people whose lives she ruined, as long as her name was in the papers. Her testimony led to the destruction of the New York Photo League. She had sworn under oath that she had not been paid by the FBI as a confidential informant.
If the truth had come out, she could have been arrested for perjury, not to mention that it would have put the trial in jeopardy. The book also spends a lot of time dealing with the other informants and what their testimony was. While this was interesting from a historical perspective, it took the focus off Angela for long stretches of the book. She also spends a lot of time speculating on the sexuality of J. Davis briefly discusses how Angela had no qualms about informing on Communist party members who were also homosexual, for example an old girlfriend of actress Judy Holliday who was also a policewoman.
I wish there had been a bit more about the lesbian and gay subculture of the Village during the forties and the fifties. Angela was hiding two secrets, that she was an informant for the FBI and also that she as a lesbian. The author describes Calomiris as becoming a media darling from her actions, calling her "America's Sweetheart. Especially since she was having a relationship at the time with the sister-in-law of her FBI handler.
You have to admit Angela had chutzpah. Of course, the biggest question is why the FBI, who surely knew or suspected that Angela was a lesbian, would recruit her as a confidential informant? Especially given the prevailing attitudes towards homosexuality at the time? Gay people were not only targets for violence and arrest; they were also considered more vulnerable to blackmail than a citizen of allegedly upstanding moral fiber. While the FBI was willing to overlook her sexual orientation, as long as she got the job done, the Communist Party was not so lenient.
She was nearly expelled from the party which would have jeopardized her role as an informant. Angela had do some fancy dancing to reassure the party leadership that she was as straight arrow as it were. She kept demanding that they find her a job, but not just any job, it had to be one that Angela felt was worthy of her talents. Working for Life or Look magazine as a staff photographer. No starting at the bottom for Angela. There would be no movie deal, or TV show detailing her exploits.
Instead, Angela faded into obscurity. She took her savings, moved to Provincetown and bought a great deal of property. She eventually moved to Mexico where she passed away in In the end, while this book is an interesting snapshot of a tumultuous time, it ultimately fails as a biography of a controversial woman.
