"What may well be a Bildungsroman is Snows of Yesteryear in two parts, "A Family War" and "A Sentimental Education"--based on the experiences of the author from his childhood to the war years, his intellectual development, involvement in political struggle, and inevitable retirement. Snows of Yesteryear is an autobiography disguised as a novel. It has elements of a roman a clef in that the author oftentimes uses actual names in the cast of characters. In many parts, the story is creative nonfiction..."
