From the #1 bestselling author comes the story of an award-winning comedian who decided to run for office and then discovered why award-winning comedians tend not to do that.

Al Franken, Giant of the Senate is a book about an unlikely campaign that had an even more improbable ending: the closest outcome in history and an unprecedented eight-month recount saga, which is pretty funny in retrospect. It’s a book about what happens when the nation’s foremost progressive satirist gets a chance to serve in the United States Senate and, defying the low expectations of the pundit class, actually turns out to be good at it. It’s a book about our deeply polarized, frequently depressing, occasionally inspiring political culture, written from inside the belly of the beast. In this candid personal memoir, the honorable gentleman from Minnesota takes his army of loyal fans along with him from Saturday Night Live to the campaign trail, inside the halls of Congress, and behind the scenes of some of the most dramatic and/or hilarious moments of his new career in politics.

    " Interesting insight into the inner workings of the US senate/politics mixed with dry Franken humour. A great read/listen, especially in the current dark political climate mire that we are in. "

    " Rush is Big Fat, Lying Liars, Giant in the Senate. The perfect Trifecta! Seems he's picked right back up from Lying Liars. I always enjoy listening to Al, so this is pure bliss for car rides! "
