Description

After falling off the wagon and becoming what he so clearly and strongly resisted-a consumer-Josh Swenson (aka: Larry) finds himself in a hyper-paranoid state of no return. That is, until he is kidnapped and coaxed back into resurfacing as his old persona. Before long, Larry is back on the scene with much more on his mind that a gospel website-this time Larry wants to effect change in government. What starts out as a small campaign to get the younger population to vote turns into a run for the presidency. Can Larry really take on George Bush? In this very smart, very witty novel, Janet Tashjian brings the political world to the forefront and exposes it from many different points of view.

Professional reviews

"The improbable presidential candidate in this satirical novel is Josh, a teen Internet guru (who used Larry as his nom de plume) returning to the scene after years in hiding. His offbeat, radical third-party campaign energizes young voters across the country and might bend the rules enough to put him in the White House. An 18-year-old's candidacy is obviously a fantasy at the national level, but the short, breezy novel is well-researched and sometimes perceptive. Maybe some politically minded listener will put Josh's tactics to work on a local campaign. Jesse Eisenberg is 20, no longer a teen, but is believable as the angst-ridden young candidate. Some jokes reflect the current scene, but the story line will likely hold up over time. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
