Description

Internationally best-selling author and Washington State Book Award winner Jim Lynch's Truth Like the Sun was named one of Amazon's Best Books of the Month. In 1962, Roger Morgan became the golden boy behind the Seattle World's Fair. Nearly 40 years later, he's a shoo-in for mayor. But when an ambitious journalist begins digging into his past, sordid details about his career come to light. ''A briskly paced novel that gives us an insider's view into both the politics of culture and the culture of politics.''- Kirkus Reviews

Professional reviews

"In 1962, Seattle hosted a World's Fair; in this novel, fictitious Roger Morgan is the stunning young visionary behind both the fair and its breathtaking Space Needle. Thirty-nine years later, at age 70, he attempts to restore his role as "Mr. Seattle" by running for mayor. Richard Poe crisply narrates Morgan's recollections of his glory days and his accounts of 2001 political confrontations. He provides entertaining impressions of the celebrities Roger accompanied through the fair, including Elvis, and instills verve and a bit of desperation in the voice of Helen Gulanos, the investigative reporter who is digging for political dirt in the election. The continual shifts between 1962 and 2001 can be a bit confusing at times in audio. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
