When twentysomething political fundraiser Olivia Greenley is recruited by her close friend Jacob Harriston to join the presidential campaign of Georgia Governor Landon Taylor, she is intoxicated by optimism and opportunity. Taylor’s commitment to social equality and economic responsibility in the post-housing-bubble era is palpable. Sacrificing her sleep, comfort, and income are certain to help make the world a better place, right? 

Domestic Affairs: A Campaign Novel vividly captures the fervor and idealism of campaign life—as well as the disillusionment staffers feel when told to make the inevitable compromises. Leaving a meeting with foreclosure victims to hop onto a private jet is one thing, but how to justify dining at a $2,000-a-plate dinner knowing how many lunches the money could buy for at-risk kids? How far does one go when the ends appear to justify the means? And what’s a girl to do when the most charming, erudite, capable, and ostensibly honorable man in the free world wants to take her to bed (but he’s married and her boss)? How does it feel to keep the biggest secret of her life from her best friend and coworker, even as the three of them spend every waking hour together? The tension between characters, between right and wrong, and between success and implosion are taut.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kathy | 1/10/2014

    " A little election novel that I wrapped up right before the real thing. Looks like the extreme narcissism we all suspect lingers behind the closed doors of political campaigns is probably true. "

    " What a GIANT waste of time! After learning about all the background info of what happens behind the scenes of an election- that's it. That's really all you get out of this book. "

    " I think this was a free book or maybe I had checked it out from the library...don't waste any money or time reading this book. Unfortunately I read the book from beginning to end only because I'm the kind of reader who has to finish a book no matter how bad it is. "
