    1. The major failing of this book is that Binelli does not ever fully commit to the material.Even reading the last pages, I was both unsure whether to, and wanting very much to, believe that this was alternate history, that this Sacco and Vanzetti did not live in a world that included the other Sacco and Vanzetti, in a kind of half hearted because there is no mention of the real S V in the accounts of this S V, as you would think there would be, if that is what Binelli was trying to do double expos [...]

    2. I read this for a new reading group I joined It is a great group, willing to read challenging books This one fits squarely in that category I can t say that I enjoyed reading it It felt like work Mark Binelli seems to have defied every convention of novel writing Only near the very end did I begin to figure out what he was doing with his characters.The fictional Sacco and Vanzetti of the novel are vaudeville performers who do slapstick comedy pie in the face, etc , a genre of performance art I h [...]

    3. Seems like most of the reviews readers bothered to write about the book are generally negative, but I found it an absurdly enchanting book The conceit using Sacco and Vanzetti as a comedy team is winning enough in its own right, and Binelli is able to sustain his clever ploy throughout By mingling facts from the lives of the real S V with those of their fictional counterparts, Binelli prompts the question at root, isn t the impulse to throw a bomb the same as that to throw a pie Of particular no [...]

    4. As we all know, Sacco and Vanzetti were the Italian American anarchists executed in the 1920s after a long running trial that became an international cause celebre In this highly inventive and entertaining novel their story gets interweaved with a spoof alternative history in which Sacco Vanzetti were a LaurelHardy style vaudeville team who made it big in Hollywood before fading out in the 50s There are cameo appearances by Mussolini, Bob Hope, Ezra Pound, Woody Guthrie, along with a phalanx of [...]

    5. this is a brave, brave debut novel it really tries to tackle so many difrrent concepts and i think it does it as gracefully as it can i guess what i m trying to say is that i can t imagine anyone else conveying these many, many, many sentiments and this kind of odd concept with alot coherency but that being said it is a little ambitious and sometimes left me feeling lost in ideology, which can sometimes jar me out of the suspention of disbelief required in reading a fiction book has one of the [...]

    6. What a mess This feels like a 1 page digression from Against the Day stretched out to book length It s official Dalkey Archive has finally released something bad I should have guessed the cover art stinks I read this thing over two days, dashing to the finish in hopes of finding anything not warmed over, emptied out Post Modern, or just clunky Plus, for a book about comedians and for a book that describes their act, this is impossibly unfunny Not one laugh.

    7. This one is pretty good so far Although, I haven t been engrossed enough that I pick it up at every opportunity Still, the author has come up with a very creative format and story One week later I finally just had to put this one aside About half way through, I completely lost interest The fact that there really isn t a plot kind of ruined things for me, and I got bored.

    8. Two Anarchist victims of the American justice system reimagined as slapstick comedians Three great tastes that taste great together I ve already read it twice.What do comedy and anarchy have in common The ability to enter a crowded pie shop and see nothing but possibility.

    12. A book about anarchist vaudevillians is bound to be good.On second thoughtI never finished this.

    13. Tried to finish, but I couldn t break the first hundred The fragmented structure, deliberate in its pseudo documentary and footnoted style, makes it a difficult one for me to get into.

    15. Ambitious but flawed which I ll take over restrained but accomplished any day , Binelli s novel works beautifully in pieces but doesn t quite realize the potential brilliance of its conceit.
