The Glorious Conspiracy
Knopf, 1961 - 211 pages
"Before he is rescued by the generous exile, Jean-Pierre, Ben Brown wandered the countryside in search of food, in fear of deportation, desperate and alone. Slowly Jean-Pierre helps Ben recover his long buried knowledge of the written word and finds him a job as a printer's helper. Thus he is thrown into the struggle between Federalists and Democrats and finds friends among both groups. How Ben emerges from an uncivilized urchin to a courageous newspaper columnist, beset always by realistic problems, creates a stirring novel, of an individual and the era in which he lived.
