"It becomes clear very quickly that 'Primary Colors', the rollicking new satire by the coy, media-savvy author Anonymous, is loosely modeled on Robert Penn Warren's classic 'All the King's Men'. Once again, we are given the tale of a Southern politician's rise to power, narrated by one of his young disciples. Once again, we are asked to contemplate the moral compromises made in the world of politics. Anonymous, however, is no Robert Penn Warren. And Anonymous's Southern pol, Jack Stanton, is no Willie Stark; he's a cartoon version of Bill Clinton. And therein lies both the fascination and disappointment of this novel. To be sure, 'Primary Colors' gives the reader an entertaining, inside and often very funny look at the daily workings of a political campaign...But for all its humor and keenly observed descriptions, the novel appeals to our gossip radar rather than our literary instincts."Klein, Joe is the author of 'Primary Colors A Novel of Politics', published 2006 under ISBN 9780812976472 and ISBN 0812976479.
