From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vida is a 1980 novel by Marge Piercy.

The eponymous heroine is a 1960s Anti-war and pro-environmental activist who has in the modern day (1980s when the novel was written and is partially set) become part of an illegal underground revolutionary network which resembles the real Weatherman (later the Weatherpeople.) The story is told in the then present day and in flashback to the 1960s. Vida struggles to maintain a double life still having contacts with legitimate members of society, notably her lover Leigh, while continuing to carry out illegal actions against the government.
