Praise

Praise for Primary Colors:

"An absolutely dazzling book, the best political novel in many years, one that manages to be simultaneously cynical and redemptive, funny and profound, reportorial, satirical, and thrilling."
– Christopher Buckley, The New Yorker

"Breaks all the rules and lives to tell about it … there is a wonderful honesty about [Primary Colors], a refusal to give into the conventional interpretation of people and events that cripples so much that is written about politics."
– Michael Lewis, The New York Times Book Review

"This sensitively wrought, deftly drawn, acid-tongued political novel … is the best aides’ eye view of politics since All the King’s Men."
– Walter Shapiro, Time

"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."
– Andrew Ferguson, The Wall Street Journal

"A delight to read. The author knows politics … and writes like a dream."
– Alex Beam, The Boston Globe

"The rollicking new satire … Primary Colors gives the reader an entertaining, inside and often very funny look at the daily workings of a political campaign."
– Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"[The author] has matched Teddy White. Nowadays, only fiction can do justice to the truth."
– Richard Cohen, The Washington Post
