Brammer, who served on Lyndon Johnson's staff, uses his experience as a political insider to illustrate the good and the bad sides of politics. Three interlocking tales each feature a different protagonist - a state legislator, a junior senator, and the governor's press secretary - and illuminate the figure of Arthur "Goddam" Fenstemaker, a master politician and the governor of Texas. Considered a ruthless, exuberant politician, Fenstemaker works for the ultimate good of the people, even though he often employs questionable methods.
"[A] classic American political [novel]...stunning, original, intensely human...It will be read a hundred years from now." (New York Times)
