3.0 out of 5 stars More than just a situ curiosity 15 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
I am a bit of a situationist completist and bought this book to keep my library up-to-date. Was I merely fetishizing the return of some better-forgotten book commodity? Perhaps, but I did not expect much. The situationists were no fans of the novel form and Bernstien, apparently, only wrote this book in order to bring in some cash.

The limitations of the 'dead art' of novel writing are clearly pushed to extremes throughout. The characters are thin charactures of the situ gang, the plot is scant and tedious, the dialogue pretentious. This was no doubt Bernstien's intention. Representing the activities of her and her friends in this manner - a novel - served to give them a perspective on their real activity, lifting the weight of cliche they had to bend to in their lives. I think it should be read like this; as a fictional account of the 'lifestyle' the group pursued so that it could be held at a distance and not swallow them whole. In this sense it is successful, whether it is good or not is somewhat beside the point.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Tired Horses 4 Dec 2013
By Jared J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a really interesting and intimate story by Michele Bernstein. Bernstein was one of a select few members of The Situationist International. The SI began in France and Bernstein was likely an early participant. Unfortunately, the women of SI were often overlooked as were all women in this time period. None the less, though not as revolutionary as the anarchist texts, Bernstein's story is captivating and a wonderful book in which I will continue to return to. Other members of the SI include Guy Debord who wrote the society of the spectacle and raoul vaneigem. Though, don't expect the type same material as found here. 5/5
