The first half of the book is a dead-on satire of the Washington D.C. conservative pundit/think tank scene. The latter half sees our protagonist returning to his hometown in upstate New York, finding it a much more amenable environment, despite its defects. Anyone who has enjoyed Kauffman's nonfiction will enjoy this novel at least as much -- and those who have yet to discover Kauffman are in for a treat.
