Staff Reviews


For your consideration this holiday season, a highly diverting novel about a simpler time in America-- one in which a political scandal could end your career. Gather round the yule log and read this heartwarming tale to the whole family. Remember the days, long past, when corruption and graft were shocking? When scandals originated from the desire to provide services and infrastructure (like a badly-needed hospital) to the citizenry? When public leaders of good intention would break bad because of the all-consuming nature of power, rather than because of their fundamentally repugnant personalities? This novel makes those reminiscences feel real. If only we could go back to those times and Make America Great Again

— From James

Description


Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic book is generally regarded as the finest novel ever written on American politics. It describes the career of Willie Stark, a back-country lawyer whose idealism is overcome by his lust for power.
