If it isn’t already, Red Harvest should be a film. The book uses colors sparingly. The main colors that show up are grey and red. Greys in polluted skies, business suits, unhealthy faces. Reds in IWW membership cards (one faked, the other perhaps insincerely held, and many mentioned indirectly in the pockets of participants in a crushed strike), ties, and blood, lots of blood.
