Publisher's Summary

Primary Colors has its rich rewards as a savvy insider’s look at life on the stump. But it travels far beyond mere gossip and exposé to discover a convincing world of its own, peopled by smart cookies, nutcases, and wheeler-dealers, whose public and private lives illuminate each other—sometimes by casting dark shadows. This story spans the novelistic spectrum from bedroom farce to high moral drama, and it paints a picture of the political state of the nation so vivid and authentic that one finds in it the deepest kind of truth—the kind of truth that only fiction can tell.

    "Clintons, Explained"

    This was a great listen, and anyone interested at all in politics (especially early '90s politics) or the Clintons would probably love it. This book has great writing, great characters, laugh-out-loud humor and situations, and political maneuvering that's as realistic as it gets. I loved it. It's a rich work, not at all simplistic, and it made me simultaneously think less of the Clintons and admire them more. My only beef with it is that as a fan of the excellent movie adaptation (with John Travolta and Emma Thompson as Bill and Hillary), I couldn't help but notice that the screenplay is superior to the original novel in some ways. The movie is leaner, streamlines or eliminates several extraneous characters and situations, and doesn't end on any kind of a cliffhanger the way this novel rather unfortunately does.

    But overall: Definitely worth a credit. And the narrator is excellent! Grade: A minus.

    For extra interest, look up the controversy surrounding the identity of the author.
