So Fort Wayne probably was seventh on Hitler’s List. Some of the stories were good. I think the last one relied too much on knowing obscure details about Dillinger.

Jan 10, 2009 Miker rated it it was amazing. I loved the stories in the little book. I've read them over and over. So Fort Wayne probably was seventh on Hitler’s List. Martone is like that. 1) Jimmy Probasco was another small time crook that some people believe was the one really shot outside of the Biograph Theater and Manhattan Melodrama starring Clark Gable was theories that was playing.

"Michael Martone writes with deep affection for the ordinary. In his hands, the quotidian dreams of the American heartland are transformed... " â?”Louise Erdrich

"This is a marvelous book.... What a gift!" â?”Richard Rhodes

Nice set of short stories, but nothing amazing. Might be good for Fort Wayne folks who were adult age prior to 1985.

A respected author mentioned this book saying it was the funniest book he had ever read. Based on that recommendation and its' interesting title I purchased it.
I think I have a dveloped sense of humor but I completely missed the humor, if any, in this book..
I have never heard anything about Ft. Wayne to contradict the impression that it is a small boring town. Always has been and I suspect that it always will be.. I read about half of it and gave up as it seemed to me to be a plotless exercise in writing..
The humor seems to begin and end with the title..

Michael Martone, a former resident of Fort Wayne is the author of Fort Wayne is Seventh on Hitler's List. A collection of short stories about the famous, and the not so famous, Indiana residents and the lives that they lead. Each story has many humorous facts, and confusing fiction intertwined to make this a very unique book.
There are 17 exceptional selections throughout the book, and each has a great plot, with complex characters that show amazing depth. There is one particular story that shows one man's compassion for another human being. Though there are not any names used, the personality of the main character in "Pieces" is apparent. He is a drifter, who sleeps in his car, and travels around the country cooking chicken for restaurants that are willing to buy his recipe. The story entails the journey of this man and a female hitch hiker. This short story as well as the others are well worth reading. As I stated before, the complexity of the characters in each short story are outstanding. In the story "Everybody Watching and the Time Passing Like That" it shows the impact on a teacher with the death of legend James Dean. The story of a widow, longing for her soldier to come home, clings for a certain closure in the story "Dear John." This is an exceptional book that not only entertains, but informs the readers as well.
Being a resident of Indiana, this book gave me a sense of pride. It seems as though the reader can travel from town to town with each story. As a resident from Indiana myself, the towns that are listed in each story are very familiar. Such as Santa Claus, French Lick, and Muncie, which are listed in the story "Three Postcards from Indiana." This is a wonderful book that any Hoosier should be proud to read.

way too much modernistic flourish and disconnected prose for me.
