Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A USA Today bestseller

The best politcal novel of the year by a landslide, Primary Colors is the riveting story of a governor-from-a-small-state's quest for the presidency, and a jaded Beltway insider's search for a leader to believe in. Spending nearly a year on the New York Times best-seller list, this blockbuster novel has sold well over one million copies. Primary Colors offers a richly detailed look at life on the political stump. As former congressional aide Henry Burton is dazzled and lured into presidential hopeful Jack Stanton's fledgling campaign, he becomes a cog in Stanton's unstoppable political machine. Burton illuminates-through his actions and observations-the sometimes seamy, sometimes steamy and sometimes surprisingly noble ascent to the presidency. Filled with spin doctors, power brokers, and loyal followers, this story of a presidential race spans the spectrum from bedroom farce to high moral drama. Narrated with commanding presence by Peter Francis James, Primary Colors paints such an authentic picture of national politics that it's become the most talked-about novel of the political season.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A rollicking new satire…an entertaining…and often very funny look at the daily workings of a political campaign.” New York Times
“Thrills aplenty. Primary Colors is great fun. The descriptions of the campaign trail, from the union-hall meetings to the rubber-chicken dinners, are superb, as is the portrayal of Stanton’s relationship with his wife, Susan.” Entertainment Weekly
“An exceptional novel…A deftly drawn, wonderfully knowing portrait of our national bloodsport—politics.” USA Today
“The dialogue throws sparks, capturing perfectly the lingo of political professionals. [The author] is a writer of considerable gifts; he has intimate knowledge of the political world.” Wall Street Journal
“[A] crackling, highly perceptive study…The literary sophistication on display—the shaping of the story, the characterizations, the atmosphere, the dialogue—is so considerable…Stands as a definitive political novel for these uneasy times…At once explosively funny and tragic.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A marvelously down-and-dirty chronicle of a presidential campaign that will make your eyes water, and some more famous eyes burn, in recognition…This is a delicious gift for your friends who still believe that politics and politicians have the answers.” Kirkus Reviews
