About the Author

Saul Bloodworth was born in Death Valley Junction, CA. His father, Alessandro Blodione, was a playwright from Chicago, and his mother, Gretchen Worth, was a world famous pianist of German-Jewish descent. They met in Havana, Cuba, where they had joined the revolution. After the death of Che Guevara, they moved back to the US to open an Italian pastry shop that became a nationwide chain. Saul studied civil disobedience at Columbia University, where he also joined the Rock‘n’Roll Band "Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh." Rumor had it that he left New York to found an organic farm in Oneida County. The real reason, however, was that the FBI had issued a warrant relating to his involvement in the death of J. Edgar Hoover. Saul went undercover to Nevada, where old family friend Norman Podhoretz got him a job at an undisclosed location to develop a laser weapon against UFOs. After Janis Joplin died, the love of his life, he traveled to India, Mongolia, and Luxembourg to finally settle in swinging London. He wrote his biography, "God and Me: Memories of an Episcopalian," (unpublished) but left London after a bad breakup with Elton John. Back in the US, he landed a job as a cast member at Disney World, as Dale, the chipmunk, and as Barry Diller’s evil twin. He also wrote sitcoms under the nom de plume Bill O’Reilly, and had a supporting role as a disgruntled French playwright in Woody Allen’s landmark movie "Here’s Looking at You, Kid," which was cut out. After 9-11, he joined The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, but got fired days later for calling Ann Coulter "Leni Riefenstahl‘s bitch" during the Charlie Rose Show (he also showed up drunk and stole Rose’s wig). Friends got him a job as a senior speechwriter for the Reverend Al Sharpton, which he still holds. Saul was married to hotel heiress Paris Hilton, though for only two days. His estranged son, from a previous marriage to Maureen Dowd, is a line producer for Fox News. The Cabal is his first novel. It is based on a true story.

Format: Paperback
A fascinating and darkly funny book that makes you bite your nails. You can't put it down to the last page. The whole thing reads like an episode of the X-files, just with sex and romance. The story is bordering on the absurd, still you keep asking yourself: Is this what has really happened with the World Trade Center and behind the scenes in the White House? Can that be real? Well, maybe now we will find out.

Format: Paperback
"Cabal" is one of my top guilty pleasures for this year. With the behind-the-scenes at the White House things that go on, it confirms and elaborates on what I have thought about our President, who is pictured in some of his less-than-stellar and all too believable shocking and sometimes embarrassing moments. His wife is portrayed as the long-suffering woman she must be, who is able to find relief in a wonderful way in an almost post-racial society (well, at least in some scenes)... Tells the "truth" about conspiracies at the top of our government, and internationally -- and it is fun.

Format: Paperback
American politics haven't ever been treated this way before. Saul Bloodworth is a pseudonym for a journalist who writes so dangerously, a real name can't be revealed. I loved this book because it dealt with conspiracy and political intrigue in new ways - its not just some boring non-fiction, but brings all our "GREAT" (sarcastic) leaders into an alternate, but revealing, universe.
