Threeway – A Short Novel for a Long Season
The president's sex tape is missing. In an election year?
Who wins if it turns up? The physically blessed, ex-hippie, male enhancement millionaire running for the Republicans? How about that new third party, the Brown Baggers? They have quite a way of expressing themselves. Maybe that jaded, pathologically centrist political blogger who feels each tick of the clock? Maybe, we all win? Not likely, but don't count out that woman in the tape. Not yet, anyway.
A biting political satire, Threeway is an American novella for our time. It takes aim at the cultural, economic and rhetorical divisions that have split the country. In turns bawdy, romantic, sad, and alarming, Threeway traces the journey of three very different--yet similar--presidential candidates, exploring the common roots of loneliness and neglect from which our divisions grow even as it gives the business to all sides.
