I decided to read some lovely short books this weekend, among them this strange little Iraq war polemic I liked Baker s The Mezzanine, though confess to finding the last third a slog is the footnote dead Discuss No such problem here, as this all dialogue number serves us quick and chin stroking content from cover to cover Two friends gather to discuss the ramifications of assassinating George W Bush and talk tangentially about their lives This book makes brevity a narrative strategy it s too short to be about one thing in particular, to carry a political message To me, it articulates that cloud of confusion when war was declared, when outrage swept across the world and most right minded people wanted Bush s head on a spike Towards the end, the book argues against anger itself, dejectedly suggesting we should shake our heads and move on, being powerless to stop things And, alas, it d be right Sad, funny, wacky, and deeply serious Bravo. At 115 pages long and by Nicholson Baker, you don t really have an excuse to not read this book It ll take you like 2 hours, and he s fantastic.I loved the format two guys meet in a hotel room and record their conversation about assassinating the president that d be George W on tape You don t get any description of the environment or the characters beyond what is in their dialogue, and yet you get a real sense of where they are and what they sound like It s practically written to become a radio drama.Baker doesn t assume his readers are dummies this book is riddled with casual references to American war history and politics all you ll get will be the name of a country, or a person, or even it s like that guy, with the prisoners in 19XX Unfortunately for me, I am a dummy, and I think that really detracted from my experience of the book I felt like I needed a Checkpoint References Guide.So likely, had I paid attention in high school classes and watched the news and read the papers, this would be a five star book for me Unfortunately I was spending too much time crafting paper airplanes with will u go to the prom w me y n scrawled inside, and thus was incapable of appreciating this book beyond 4 stars.
