Summary
During the 2016 presidential election cycle, novelist Richard North Patterson wrote one column per week for The Huffington Post about the presidential race. Those essays are collected here for the first time in a highly personal 'journal' chronically Paterson's observations in real time
Summary
In this bracing, funny book, Patterson brings to bear a novelist's piercing sensibility to the process of examining the election, moments that betray a candidate's character and inner life and hold up a mirror to the American population. Filled with fresh insights and indelible prose, Fever Swamp is a masterful take on a unique campaign filled with the pathos, humor, and important lessons of the liveliest playground shoving match
