Quotes & Awards

  • “I love this book. With great insights to the political process and human nature, The Means takes you into the backrooms and bedrooms of an anything-goes presidential campaign. If Doug Brunt wasn’t a great novelist, he should be a campaign manager. This is a taut, thoughtful, and totally believable story of American politics at its best and worst.”

    Nelson DeMille

  • “Fans of House of Cards will appreciate The Means with its insider’s look at a presidential campaign and a surprise ending I did not see coming.”

    Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of Worthy Brown’s Daughter

  • “Douglas Brunt’s gripping novel starts full throttle and doesn't let up. This compelling story takes you into the harsh reality of hard-ball politics and cutthroat journalism. Some books are just for fun; some give you insight and depth about things you never knew, that you can't read in your daily paper. In The Means, you get it all and more.”

    Mike Huckabee

  • “Brunt offers up a savage, jaded, and comical depiction of freewheeling Wall Street bond traders during their precollapse heyday in this engaging debut…As Nick’s life, his marriage, and the US economy edge closer to meltdown, Brunt brings all the pieces together for a satisfying climax to this compulsively readable novel.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Delves not just into the mechanics of the financial crash, but also the mindset that created the explosive state of affairs…A smart shot at the absurdity of Wall Street and the long fall that brought us all down.”
