"...In bringing a humane point of view to the pitched election-year conflict between liberals and conservatives, this novel couldn't be timelier... A freewheeling satire that does for politics what Texan Dan Jenkins' antic fictions did for golf and football. Smiley's first novel disproves the notion that conservatives can't be really funny."Love it. Just two weeks till the book's available everywhere. Don't rely on me to remind you again. Pre-order today!
