The writing is sharp, concise and humorous and biting, portraying the dirty politics in a national election, not unlike a Nixon dirty tricks or Bush dirty tricks election, with some humanism thrown in. Warning: unless the reader falls into the vermin category, she or he will not identify with any of the characters in this novel, but still worth a read!

This is a particularly American book, although France's Sarkozy's first election might have appeared thusly [but the Americans, Negroponte and Wisner figured into that, so . . ]
