Caryl Brahms: A Bullet in the Ballet



C and using silly names usually doesn t work for me and even when the actual crime is rendered in realistically well done ways It s not a go for meAnyway in a very self aware narration the book begins by telling us that we re in a murder mystery and 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 now much about speci 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 is underdeveloped and the ending 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 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 all else to obfuscate the Archies Americana, Vol. 1 killer until the last moment are also tiresome mysteries in which the gimmick is too obvious must sustain tension toeep 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 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 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 ever 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 employed by the great Terry Pratchett I can t believe this is out of print now Poof Stroganof.

Was The Book Thief kind of surprised this his as much of a rep with mystery fans as it does it s much effective 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 isilling them or why It s fairly amusing nevertheless might even read it again if I m still alive in 10 or 20 years Funny sharp murder ballet satire Very enjoyable 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 eared copy from and it took me right back I missed it Lesson don t lend books you really like Murder mystery as high farce The whodunnit isn t especially hard to work out but it s worth it for the sheer ridiculousness at every turn with ludicrously over the top characters and a lot of wonderfull accurate ballet critiue A murder in the ballet draws new detective inspector uill to the case The show must go oneven if it means destroying clues moving the body backstabbing each other and lying just to attract attentionMapcap I didn t care for this because it was jerkily written easy to lose track of this or that or even of one s place in the paragraph But it did prove to have me completely fooled after I was sure what had gone down and what red herrings had been laid in my path A 1937 humorous whodunnit by the established team of Caryl Brahms Evening Standard ballet critic and S J Simon bridge international and Observer columnist More life wit good writi 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 someone eliminates the newest Petroushka before he even gets to make his entrance 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 it will take one performance of the ill fated ballet before the case will be solved According to th.

E blurbs in the International Polygonics edition of A Bullet in the Ballet by Caryl Brahms and S J Simon everyone from Sir John Gielgud to Sir Alec Guinness to Andrew Lloyd Weber thought this book was the wittiest funniest book ever or at least when the edition 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 nowledge of the ballets which are mentioned or somethingbecause this one did not find this book to be all that hysterical or witty Mildly amusing at times yes But great high comedy Not so much It is full stereotypical prima donnas stereotypical Russian ballerinas a stereotypical ballet company owner and a stereotypically dense policeman who wouldn t recognize the murderer if she had a giant M painted on their forehead and she might as well There is all the little jealousies and love affairs and preening and temper tantrums that one would expect backstage in any of the arts overplayed and larger than life The mystery as hinted in reference to the dense policeman isn t particularly mysterious I spotted the murderer in one of the earliest appearances uill isn t uite so uickThe most interesting character is Stroganoff the company s owner His single minded the show must go on attitude in the face of his rapidly diminishing stock of lead dancers is the most amusing part of the whole book He simply can t understand why the police are so upset that he had Palook s body whisked off stage while the grand finale continued virtually uninterrupted The audience never suspects that the star is really dead and in fact a few critics remark that the death of Petroushka was rather unconvincing It is on Stroganoff s behalf that I am assigning two and a half stars to A Bullet in the BalletThis was first posted on my blog My Reader s Block Please reuest permission before reposting Thanks 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 little mystery by AA Milne by TH White by Miles Franklin This pair is not famous first but the weirdness of this little book is of a type Ultimately I didn t like this one that much because it was too silly for me A book both trying to be silly and parodi.
