Summing up a 600-page book in a small newspaper article isn’t easy, but if you enjoy politics, current events, and the idea of three little girls saving the world from a government conspiracy - involving many of the politicians whose names have become infamous in the last eight years - you’ll thoroughly enjoy Irving Hall’s first novel, “The Einstein Sisters Bag the Flying Monkeys.”
In the days leading up to the 2000 presidential election, three young Jewish girls are assigned with an astronomical task. They must keep George W. Bush from stealing the election, starting wars and bringing about the end of the world, all in the name of Christian fundamentalism. It may sound like a difficult job for three young girls, but with a little help from their sassy bus driver Angela, and a stage shy Jesus who returns to earth to correct the Christian misconception of his message, anything is possible.
“The Einstein Sisters Bag the Flying Monkeys” is a political satire set in Florida in the tumultuous days leading up to the 2000 presidential election. Seen through the eyes of Tina, Norma and Maxine Einstein, the great, great granddaughters of Albert Einstein, Hall’s story recounts a tale of corrupt politicians working to fool the American people in a conspiracy that could potentially cause Armageddon.
