In his book, "Additional Dialogue: Letters of Dalton Trumbo, 1942-1962," Dalton Trumbo gives his audience a better understanding of why he was believed to have been warty, abrasive and stubborn. Trumbo believed people have the right to silence and they have the right to speak. He was angered when a book review was written about one book but another author's book was ignored. Trumbo spent time in prison where he was not allowed to write anything negative about the living conditions.
