I've got to rush off to work early this morning, so no time for link madness. But that's just as well, because all the action this week is over at the Litblog Co-Op, where we'll be spending the entire week discussing Sacco and Vanzetti Must Die! by Mark Binelli, one of my favorite books of the past year. The author will be guest blogging on Wednesday and Ed Champion will air his podcast interview on Friday, while in the meantime LBC readers will be posting on aspects of the book from anarchy to silent film to the myriad historical references. Head on over to read up on the discussion, and perhaps even enter the contest to win a free copy of the book. Here, I'll give you a head start with the contest question:
What historical "couple" would make a great slapstick comedy team, a la Sacco & Vanzetti, and why?
Best answer posted in the comments here by end of the day on Friday wins a signed copy of the book AND an original publicity poster. Best of luck -- may the best reader win, and enjoy the conversation!
