Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

An engaging, essential novel for readers who feel disenfranchised by the political process.

The story follows Samantha Harrison as she gets an MBA and law degree, marries one of her former professors, distinguishes herself as a prosecutor and eventually runs for public office. When the story opens in 2016, she’s the Republican presidential candidate running against Hillary Clinton in what promises to be a historic election. Wood tells Harrison’s story using three methods: lengthy quotes from her campaign speeches that illustrate her worldview, italicized text that offers readers a glimpse into her thought processes (“Jesus, if the president of the United States can’t affect markets, who controls America: the people or the boardrooms?”), and the chronological story of her life. The author juggles these angles with impressive formal control, and they ultimately provide a deeper portrait of Harrison than a traditional narrative would. … Wood’s unflinching look at what it takes to get ahead in Washington is bleak but feels authentic. Readers may find themselves deflated by the novel’s cynical take on politics, but they may also find satisfaction in the way it eviscerates its deeply unlikable main character. Harrison never quite gets her just deserts, but by the end of the novel, it’s very clear how far she has fallen.

Review

KIRKUS Review (March 10, 2014):

"An engaging, essential novel for readers who feel disenfranchised by the political process."

"...a potent tale about the corrupting influence of power and its tragic consequences for one family. The story follows Samantha Harrison as she gets an MBA and law degree, marries one of her former professors, distinguishes herself as a prosecutor and eventually runs for public office. When the story opens in 2016, she's the Republican presidential candidate running against Hillary Clinton in what promises to be a historic election. ... Wood's unflinching look at what it takes to get ahead in Washington is bleak but feels authentic. Readers may find themselves deflated by the novel's cynical take on politics, but they may also find satisfaction in the way it eviscerates its deeply unlikable main character."

REPUBLICAN COFFEE:
When we first meet Sam, she is a startlingly driven young woman who is confronted with the realities of compromise, principles and the cost of success early in her career...Douglas Wood does a phenomenal job of setting up the complex circumstances which force compromise on our fledgling politician.
