Going Away is one of my all-time favorite novels. It's like a cross between Kerouac's On the Road and Brecher's Strike!, as the setting is a 1956 road trip from L.A. to New York by a militant who's glued to the car radio listening to news flashes from the uprising in Hungary, while zig-zagging across the U.S. touring sites of historical class struggle and having romantic interludes. I was so moved by the book that I found Sigal's e-mail address and asked him what his influences were. He said that On the Road was a definite inspiration, as well as his extensive reading of working class history.
