Reviews about The Anarchist's Convention (5):

John Sayles has an enviable gift, he can remember rich dialogue and recreate it in a story. He loves regular people, the Latina cleaning woman, the white mid-western truck driver, the aging New York anarchist, the young Boston woman who bowls with the other girls to enjoy a little life away from a life without prospects. You can hear the varied accents and the timber.

His characters are so vibrant because they speak with their own voice - rich, unique and often from different cultures. So many writers use different characters that sound alike - because they are just speaking for the writer. Not Sayles. If you appreciate people in the real world, this collection of short stories is a gift. If you are an aspiring writer of characters and dialogue, Sayles is the master. Learn and enjoy.

So good to see this on Kindle. I loved the title story especially, when I first read it - the aged anarchists having their annual meeting in a Mormon-run hotel - "That's the bunch killed Joe Hill… Corporate holdings to rival the Pope", creaky old politicos, clever and wry but never cynical, with a herd of young Barnard girls taping their memories and patronising them while they split off into debates about syndicalism - then the hoteliers tell them they'll have to move because small-town Rotarians had the room pre-booked. Still laughing, and want to read it all over again.
The other stories are great too, by the way.

One of my favorites.

Great stories.

Please fix the Amazon listing to put the apostrophe in the right place. As you can see on the book cover, it is plural possessive (Anarchists' Convention), not singular.

I remember hearing the title story read on "Selected Shorts" -- it is hilarious.
