The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti, a New England legend

The story of the last hours of Sacco and Vanzetti -- of how a terrible sentence was passed upon them and carried out, and of what this sentence meant to millions of people the world over.

Aptly subtitled "A New England Legend," Fast has gathered together the folk lore of the Sacco-Vanzetti case, weaving it, along with facts scrupulously examined and integrated, into a strange and haunting and demanding novel.
