Howard Fast was born January 11, 1914. The grandson of Jewish immigrants from Ukraine, he was raised in a poor family, and his politics have always been an important part of his life and work. A fighter for anti-Fascist causes and a member of the Communist party, he was jailed for three months during the 1950s for refusing to testify about his political activity. Blacklisted as a result, he founded his own publishing house, Blue Heron Press, which released his novel Spartacus (1951), which was made into a popular film in 1960.

Howard Fast ichard Dyler, the film star. A hundred feet long, twenty feet wide, it was the best thing Dan had ever built, an oceangoing marvel. It had been anchored off the shipyard to be fitted, but a sudden shortage of parts, the coming into being of a thing called priorities, had put off the completion of the ship for months.

Second Generation is the second volume in the Lavette saga. This volume is about Dan Lavette and his daughter, Barbara. The books could have some of the following, scratches, scuffs, scraps, missing or torn pages, creased or bent pages and corners, writing on the pages, missing or torn dust jackets, bent or broken covers and who knows what else, dust and dirt after all we do live in a dusty climate and anything major that I find, I will note it above.

Talk about Second Generation

Howard Fast combines the drama of a family and the history that they lived through in a very readable manner. This is not a new book but still interesting and moves along smoothly. It is enjoyable and pleasant reading. I liked reading it and admire the author for many of his books. He seems to be able to get into the minds of the people he is writing about and keeps it going. The touch of history made it even more interesting.
I am completely hooked on this series, but I did think the second book was a little less developed than the first. The Immigrants, first book in the series, sets the stage for all the Lavettes, Levys, Seldons, Cassalas and is so rich in the time periods and events and character development. This book focuses mostly on Lavette daughter, Barbara, and I guess I just wasn't as taken in with her character and some of the others that seemed less fleshed out than Dan and Jean were in the first book. I am still anxious to move on to the third book, however, to see what the future holds!
The story telling is so well done, that I can not stop at the end of the night. I continue to read and read long after I should have gone to sleep. I am really looking forward to the rest of this series. It is a great book to come home to.
I have just finished reading book 2 in the Lovett's family saga. I can't wait to get to book 3, and I am so happy there are more after that. Love this author and will read every book he has written.
Hand painted book cover art is beautiful. Love Howard Fast's series sagas for their history, superb characterization and storytelling. Anyone interested in Downey, Wilmington and San Pedro Harbors, Hollywood, San Francisco, Marin County, California will live a wonderful earlier time there. Not in the novels, but with a bit of side research, did you know that in mid-20's San Pedro/Long Beach/Wilmington Harbor had a Deadman's island?
I had read the other books in the series many years ago and reread them again. This book was missing and it completed the family history. Howard Fast combines a lot of history in his novels. Over the past several decades, San Francisco has changed, but yet it is still the same. It is nice history of San Francisco and its people.
A very good book, interesting and enjoyable. Well written.
I first read Second Generation decades ago. Howard Fast's portrayal of a rich young women drawn to help the poor stayed with me though the years. I enjoyed re-reading this story and I highly recommend the whole series.
