"A highly unusual contribution to the study of politics and media."
An engaging, nicely exasperated account of the 1996 campaign for the presidency, largely consisting of a day-by-day journal novelist O'Rourke (Notts, 1996, etc.) kept from January until election day. Read full book review >
NOTTS by William O'Rourke
Released: May 1, 1996

"But fine description, a well-constructed story, and a sympathetic portrayal of the generally overlooked American and British working class carry this one over its dull patches."
Too smart for his own good, a hapless American teacher dies in a cynical game between British and Irish political factions in this digressive academic thriller from O'Rourke (Criminal Tendencies, 1987, etc.)—a mix of terrorism, striking coal miners, university trendiness, and a love affair doomed by a seemingly insignificant treachery.
