Accidental Death of an Anarchist (Morte accidentale di un anarchico) was written by the Italian playwright, Dario Fo, following the events that took place in Italy, in the late 1960s. Fo is one of Italy’s most important and well-known literary writers who is famous for employing satire and popular elements within his work. His writings deal with Italian politics and his work is able to attract people from all walks of life.
The book was released in 1970 and the play was first performed in Milan in December of the same year. In 1984, it was staged on Broadway and became Fo’s most popular work inside and outside of Italy. For theater directors, this has been the play of choice when it comes to dealing with corruption.

If you haven’t read The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (go read it), this review may not be for you. It may seem illogical—but this is a review specifically written for those that reread Douglas Adams’ work regularly. These people exist. They are normally referred to as hoopyfroods who always have a towel handy. Since Tammy a.k.a. Rabid Reader’s Reviews was tied up in the Vogon poetry appreciation chair, I volunteered to write this review. She is still alive and well, and I am pleased to inform you that she hasn’t gnawed off her own legs yet.
This year yet again, Rabid Reader’s Reviews presents 42 books to love for Towel Day. This is a selection of books that have been reviewed on this blog. We hope you will enjoy them.

Downtown Ann Arbor has small funky shops and restaurants featuring a variety of cuisines. Ann Arbor is a town with a long history but has a contemporary feel.
On South Main Street near the Liberty intersection is a heaven for comic book lovers, the wonderfully named Vault of Midnight. I first visited the store in March when my anime loving 14-year-old and her friend declared the store a must see on a trip across the border over the spring break. They’d found reviews of the store on Yelp and noted that the store hosts anime movies on Wednesday nights at an off-site location (for a limited run). While unable to take in the anime movie, my daughter and her friend spent time browsing the large collection of anime novels.

Today Rabid Reader’s Reviews is hosting the author Alan Jones whose latest novel “Bloq” will be released tomorrow.
Bill Ingram’s daughter, Carol, moved to London from Glasgow to start her career as a journalist. When she goes missing, Bill will stop at nothing to find her.

This is a gritty crime novel with some sexual content.
Faithful readers may notice that for the last several months the number of new reviews posted on this site has dropped dramatically. In October of last year, we made a sudden decision to list our house for sale. Preparing for the sale consumed our lives. Ultimately, we sold the house and found a new one in our desired area, where we’re sure we’ll be very happy.
Because the house we sold is located in a rural area, we’ve had intermittent Internet problems for years. I’m happy to report that the new house and area to which we’re moving has a wealth of options. We chose to go with Cogeco and I’m happy to report that they have very good reviews for Internet services in our new surroundings.
In the new house, I’ll have a designated reading and review-writing room and I am looking forward to sharing pictures.
As I sit waiting for the lawyers to call to tell us that they have the keys to our new home, I’m excited about the reviews to come and I am thrilled to find really wonderful stories for my readers.
I’d like to apologize to those authors still waiting for their reviews. You haven’t been forgotten and I will be following up on those books as soon as I have settled in.
I will continue to post spontaneously in the upcoming weeks before returning to publishing reviews regularly. This site has over 400 reviews—take the opportunity to drop by and read some older reviews from the previous year—maybe you will discover a new author.
