Praise for Hope Never Dies:
An Official Summer Read of Publishers Weekly and The Interrobang 

A 2018 Goodreads Choice Award Finalist

“[Hope Never Dies is] a roughly 300-page work of political fanfiction, an escapist fantasy that will likely appeal to liberals pining for the previous administration, longing for the Obama-Biden team to emerge from political retirement as action heroes. But it’s also at times a surprisingly earnest story about estranged friends who are reunited under strange circumstances.”—Alexandra Alter, New York Times

“It’s a giddy premise, a bit of Resistance wish-fulfillment for those who’d like to see Biden and Obama trading one-liners and cracking skulls.”New Yorker

“While readers are sure to get a kick out of the codenames and inside jokes used playfully throughout, Hope Never Dies is an intriguing saga that doesn’t sacrifice momentum for winks and nods.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“It’s easy to imagine that if these fist-bumping brothers were ever to become a modern Sherlock and Watson, the world might be a better, more interesting place.”—USA Today, ★★★ out of four 
 
“Obama and Biden are the ultimate crime-fighting team in Hope Never Dies.”—Washington Post
 
“An ambitious and completely successful novel.”—Booklist
 
“Deeply weird and very funny.”—The Wall Street Journal
​ 
“Step aside Holmes and Watson; back off Poirot and Hastings. A new pair of amateur sleuths are hitting town this month: Barack Obama and Joe Biden.”—The Guardian (UK) 
 
“Shaffer has sublimated liberal grief, nostalgia, and fantasy into a sort of allegorical potboiler.”—Slate

“A novel nostalgic for a feel-good moment in US politics—one that now seems far in the past.”—Quartz
