A "wildly funny" novel of a monumentally unsuccessful newspaper strike in 1960s upstate New York from a Pulitzer Prize--winning author (People). The newspaper strike has stretched on for more than a year. When it began, the Guild boasted over 250 members. Now, they're down to eighteen, with only three truly serious about the cause. Their leader, Bailey, is a columnist with an outsize sense of his own importance and a hatred of scabs that borders on fanaticism. Married to a roller derby queen, but smitten with one of his fellow radicals, Bailey is on a path of self-destruction that could take the entire city's newspaper establishment down along with him. And that's just what he has in mind. With the cape-wearing old-school Rosenthal at his side, Bailey embarks on a mad mission: hijacking the newspaper's entire ink shipment and dumping it in the snow. But he's hardly taken his first step when the scheme spins out of control, trapping him between armies of gypsies, scabs, and the wildest hippies New York has to offer. Set in a city closely resembling his native Albany, the fiction debut of William Kennedy is "a bawdy Celtic romp," foreshadowing the wit and imagination that marked his literary career (Time).… (mais)

I'm sorry, but this was just weird. A slightly cryptic book full completely unlikable characters to me....making it seem so futile. There has to be someone i care about to make me care what happens....but they were all sad, pointless people fighting battles that may not have even existed. And i say 'may' because at times i had trouble following what the hell was going on. A mixture of reality and dreams and fantasy with completely blurry lines between and betwixt.....likely on purpose.....but for readers other than myself. So, why did i read it? Well, Kennedy won the Pulitzer Prize at some point.....and i like to track the progression of writers starting at their beginning....and this one is so intriguingly devoid of interest to me, that i am almost eager to continue the journey immediately to find out how he progressed to his destiny.....or is his destiny not to my liking either? Only time will tell.....and you all will be the first to know! ( )
