The difficulties Arcani faces professionally, have an analog in her personal life. Past experience, professional commitments and her flawed existence have made her afraid of opening to a new love interest.
Finally, Hertz has done us readers a favor by keep this novel sharp and focused. Around 200 pages in length, it can read and enjoyed in one or two sittings.
Truth is, I couldn't put it down! The story is believable, and so much fun. First layer is politics not just in Congress but intra-office rivalries in a small donor-dependent nonprofit. Then, add a host of minor characters you can just picture including a flighty, wealthy CEO and a manic, control-freak Senate chief of staff. And there are small details sprinkled in that make it richer and more real, including a jogging-on-the-Washington-Mall scene and description of a group called "the pantheon," an Est- or Forum-style self-improvement cult that does indeed include Washington advocates in its fold (trust me, I've met some).
I didn't want the ride to end, and in a sign that the author has struck a resonant, lasting chord when I did reach the last page I wondered what would happen next to the protagonist and her co-workers. And that's probably the best reason to read the book, other than the colorful and at-times-hilarious scenes -- the author has created compelling characters, ones that evoke an easy camaraderie but who have smile-inducing foibles that keep them from being saccharine sweet. And within the book about the Washington scene, and environmental group dynamics, is a really touching and even gritty story of family life and its challenges and rewards.
There's a lot to like here, and it's all packaged in a felicitously fast-moving, tightly organized narrative.
Highly recommended for any fans of fiction, particularly historical fiction.
I enjoyed her version of DC politics and felt like I had the inside track of what really goes on. Kudos to the author for writing such a COOL book.
Seeing Green is an honest tale told from a young woman's perspective. I found myself easily drawn into a contemporary story of family dynamics, the missteps and travails of romantic connections and hopes, and the obsessive enthusiasm of a young professional career. The story conveys the passion and energy of those who helped shape environmental policy in the early Clinton years, told with the authenticity of someone from that world, but without being a preachy, narrow tome.
Seeing Green is a story of growth and life. It draws you in, keeps you engaged, and just like that bag of shrimp puffs, is an unexpected and enjoyable experience.
