A Day in the Life of Senator Jack S. Phoghorn in 358 Easy Pages.

Tale about a senator with morals (?)âwell, politically at leastâ and his father-in-law (a gazillionaire businessman) who are pitted against some inane power-wielders of the government. Unnecessary use of street language by most of the characters is out of place and overdone, particularly as all of them seem to use the same pronunciation of the same word. (Actually it isn't really a word and it isn't even spelled correctly.) I found the book to be rather lengthy for its content. It would probably make a decent two-act play that, with some tweaking, might also poke some incisive fun at the same time. My favorite character? It has to be Winifred Justin: the fall-down drunk who is the wife of an under-secretary of state.

A remarkable novel that touched on every emotion, fear and challenge that we face in our lives.
