IN A SAVING REMNANT, historian Martin Duberman offers a fascinating dual biography of two left-wing activists and writers, Barbara Deming and David McReynolds. Both Deming and McReynolds were open about their sexuality despite the prevailing homo-prejudice within the larger culture as well as in left-wing groups of the mid-20th century.
