Marguerite Young[edit]

Interviewer: I'm curious: how do you know that Marguerite Young is not both fiction writer and the communist journalist? (I'm working with three academics right now to resolve the issue – and have just received a copy of Nothing But the Truth, memoir of communist journalist Marguerite Young to research further.) Respectfully - --Aboudaqn (talk) 15:54, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Aboudaqn: The names may be the same but their life stories are different. They were contemporaries but one came from Indiana, the other from Louisiana. Marguerite Young the journalist worked for the Associated Press, the New York World-Telegram, the Daily Worker, and the New York Herald-Tribune (she got fired from the Daily Worker for not following the party line). Marguerite Young the novelist worked for none of those papers and instead taught high school and college. Nothing But the Truth' ' explains the journalist's colorful story and should make clear she's not the novelist.
