Dario Fo – Accidental Death of an Anarchist | Review

Title: Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Author: Dario Fo

Category: Fiction

Page Count: 92

Rating: 4.5/5

This Italian play was a hell of a lot of fun, in part because it’s also dark and depressing. It reminded me of Camus in that it takes an absurdist look at life while simultaneously basing itself on a “truestory of when an anarchist “fell” from the window of a police station. Except obviously, it wasn’t really an accident.

Yeah, go read or see this one.

Rating 3.5/5



In this little collection, 16th century Italian writer Vasari talks about the lives of Leonardo da Vinci, Fra Filippo Lippi and Sandro Botticelli. It’s some cool stuff and a great translation, too. I’d recommend it.
