I first read this book when I was about sixteen when I was in my balletomane period I loved it then and I love it now I got an old dog ared copy from and it took me right back I missed it Lesson don t lend books you really like Funny sharp murder ballet satire Very njoyable Was kind of surprised this his as *Much Of A Rep With Mystery Fans As It Does *of a rep with mystery fans as it does s much ffective as a lampoon of the world of ballet than it is as a whodunnit When you re reading something that paints in such broad strokes it s fairly hard to really care about characters with names like Petunia Patch Anton Palook and Stroganoff let alone who is killing them or why It s fairly amusing nevertheless might ven read it again if I m still alive in 10 or 20 years I first read Bullet in the Ballet as a teenager and then again several times as an adult I haven t read it now for many years Re reading it I found it had lost none of its comic zest This book is a classic Written in the 1930s it is still riotously funny today with its cast of loveably self obsessessed Russian dancers and their mammas not forgetting Nicholas Navajno choreographer of the future and his ver hopeful refrain you schange me small scheue and the impressario of the company Vladimir Stroganoff Many of the devices used by later comic writers were pioneered here the reference to people by their clothes the suit beamed smugly the repeated catch phrasesand the use of whimsical footnotes much mployed by the great Terry Pratchett I can t believe this is out of print now Poof Stroganoff For the second time I have been taken in by International Polygonics The back cover suggests that Brahms and Simon share space in the pantheon with Waugh and Firbank but really they "Are Comparable To Lesser Wodehouse The Plot "comparable to lesser Wodehouse The plot underdeveloped and the nding is just as telegraphed as it seems to be The simplicity of the mystery makes the inspector seem laughably inept By halfway through Brahms and Simon have provided Attracting Songbirds to Your Backyard every clue short of a flashing neon arrow pointed at the murderer and still Inspector uill omits the murderer s name from a list of suggests While mysteries which strive above alllse to obfuscate the killer until the last moment are also tiresome mysteries in which the gimmick is too obvious must sustain tension to keep the plot interesting There is no tension in A Bullet in the Ballet Almost all of the humor in the book derives from the fact that the ballet company central to the mystery is Russian and packed with irrational prima donnas thus the book is not The Matriarchs (The Family especially funny Lyrical passages about ballet are a bit purple but better and interesting than most of the book This is apparently the work of Carol Brahms and the mysterious aspects the work of SJ Simon There s something in the water in England in the 1920s and 1930s where so many people wanted to get into the mystery writing game There s a weird litt.

murder mystery lets get right down to it We are taken to the scene at a travelling Russian ballet where the lead actor playing Petroushka is shot through the head on stage in full costume I don t know much about specific ballets but I looked this one up and he s a clown and also I think a marionette and that s how he s described If you google 1930s ballet you can find creepy pictures from this show and others as well as youtube videos of dancing that looks oddly bad again not an Crush It! expertspecially compared to the very good stage dancing of musicals Anyway he s dead he has a goofy made up name and so since we re in London the flying suad is brought in and the tall debonair police detective Adam uill takes overSo the novel goes on and on silly thing happens silly thing resolves Attracting Birds to Your Backyard etc It s farcical and goofy and not super my thing I am interested in another of their books that is not a fake mystery novel so I will let you know Synopsis Murder runs rampant among the members of the Stroganoff ballet company It seems that the title role in the ballet Petroushka is an unlucky one When the dancer Palook is shot just at the moment of the character s death Inspector Adam uill is called in to discover who might have wanted the dancer dead Just when he settles on fellow dancer Pavel who just happens to move into the vacant starring role as his culprit someoneliminates the newest Petroushka before he Deep Listening even gets to make hisntrance Is it possible that someone hated both dancers Or does someone have a real dislike for the ballet itself and hopes to cancel the show uill hunts among *the dressing rooms for clues and interviews all and sundry in the companybut *dressing rooms for clues and interviews all and sundry in the companybut will take one performance of the ill fated ballet before the case will be solved According to the blurbs in the International Polygonics Bird-by-Bird Gardening edition of A Bullet in the Ballet by Caryl Brahms and S J Simonveryone from Sir John Gielgud to Sir Alec Guinness to Andrew Lloyd Weber thought this book was the wittiest funniest book The Works of Saint Augustine ever or at least when thedition was published in 1984 Ned Sherrin who wrote the introduction says There have been three great English comic novelists of high style in this century Waugh Firbank and the combination of Brahms and Simon Wellokay Maybe one has to be a little conversant with the ways of the ballet world or have knowledge of the ballets which are mentioned or somethingbecause this one did not.
