Primary colors: a novel of politics
A brilliant and penetrating look behind the scenes of modern American politics, Primary Colors is a funny, wise, and dramatic story with characters and events that resemble some familiar, real-life figures. When a former congressional aide becomes part of the staff of the governor of a small Southern state, he watches in horror, admiration, and amazement, as the governor mixes calculation and sincerity in his not-so-above-board campaign for the presidency.

|display_description||The electoral campaign of a Southern governor for the presidency of the United States. Narrated by a half-black campaign staffer, the novel follows the governor--ably assisted by his dynamic wife, a lawyer--as he mixes calculation with sincerity, dodges a draft-controversy bullet, gorges on barbecues, poaches off others' plates, seduces the occasional innocent bystander and confronts the resulting sex scandals.|
