Soon to be a Major Motion Picture by Abbie Hoffman

| /

Introduction by Norman Mailer.

Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture is the life story of one of the most important activists of the 20th century. Hoffman's book opens with his reflections on his suburban Jewish upbringing & early rebelliousness & goes on to recount his involvement in the student movement at Berkeley in the early 1960s, the anti-war demonstrations of the late '60s & early '70s, & his years as a fugitive from the American justice system. Along the way he gives behind-the-scenes details about the events at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago & subsequent Chicago Seven trial, his "levitation" of the Pentagon, & his friendships with Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, Allen Ginsberg & many others. Insightful, funny & often moving, Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture is a self-portrait of a radical taking stock of his life's work.
