Primary Colors: A Novel of Politics

Primary Colors: A Novel of Politics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A brilliant and penetrating look behind the scenes of modern American politics, Primary Colors is a funny, wise, and dramatic story with characters and events that resemble some familiar, real-life figures. When a former congressional aide becomes part of the staff of the governor of a small Southern state, he watches in horror, admiration, and amazement, as the governor mixes calculation and sincerity in his not-so-above-board campaign for the presidency.

Review:

"Throughout the book, the attention to physical and emotional detail in the draining political process, the sparkling intelligence and — through the use of Henry as hero — the unusual empathy with which a range of African Americans are portrayed suggest a very considerable new novelist." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This novel is more informative about politics than any government textbook." School Library Journal

Review:

"Primary Colors is an odd book. But maybe the oddest thing about it is how good it is....The author's portrait of Mr. Clinton is astonishingly powerful." New York Times
