Details

Over 100 years ago the infamous Haymarket affair in Chicago pierced the world with news of what would now be characterized as 'terrorist violence.'

In the Haymarket incident, a bomb killed police gatred to cluband maul labor protesters. And although the police could not find the man who threw the bomb, labor and anarchist leaders were found guilty in a notoriously ugly trial, and several were actually hung.

Frank Harris' novel comes from the point-of-view of the uncaught bomb-thrower, a German immigrant in love with the extreme political tactics of the notorious anarchist Louis Lingg.

About the novel, occultist Aleister Crowley wrote: 'This book is, in truth, a masterpiece; so intense is the impression that one almost asks, 'Is this a novel or confession? Did not Frank Harris perhaps throw the bomb?' At least he has thrown one now ... the best novel I have ever read.'

The Feral House edition of THE BOMB contains an afterword by anarchist thinker John Zerzan, and an anti-anarchist introduction by novelist John Dos Passos.
