The Anarchists
by John Henry Mackay

I wanted to read this book since I read an excerpt from it in 1967. It turns out the excerpt was the best part of the novel. The rest is crap. The hero thinks he has discovered the answer to life in the philosophy of Max Stirner. He walks around London feeling sorry for the misery of the poor. He goes to radical meetings and feels sorry for the benighted communists. He is a bleeding-heart egoist.

Year Read: 2002
