The Candidate

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
A surreal comedy of outrageous proportions, The Candidate is a novel about a naive and likeable con man who bluffs his way through academia on his way to an assault on the US Presidency. Like Woody Allen's Zelig with the logic of South Park, it lampoons our pathological thirst for success and fear of failure. With a huge cast of hilarious characters The Candidate is guaranteed to entertain. More

Wasn't expecting this one to be such a good read but I kept wanting to know more about the candidate! Great story about how not to let success go to your head. Highly recommended.
