Edna St. Vincent Millay, Upton Sinclair, Woody Guthrie, Kurt Vonnegut, and Rage Against the Machine have all paid tribute to Nic Sacco and Bart Vanzetti, the Italian-born anarchists notoriously executed on a murder rap in 1927. Had all those artists collaborated on one project, it would be half as weird as Sacco and Vanzetti Must Die!. In a collage of diary entries, movie scenes, and actual facts, Mark Binelli reimagines the pair as a vaudeville team who talk shop with Charlie Chaplin and go on a USO tour of Italy. This gag goes on for 350 pages, almost 75 too many, but its best riffs play like frisky, radical-chic remixes of the pop canon.
