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
