Non-Fiction Memoir | Humor
From Senator Al Franken - #1 bestselling author and beloved
SNL alum - 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.
This 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.
Has Al Franken become a true Giant of the Senate? Franken
asks readers to decide for themselves.
