Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic book is generally regarded as the finest novel ever written on American politics. It describes the career of Willie Stark, a back-country lawyer whose idealism is overcome by his lust for power.
Put it right there, eye level, so it's unmissable when someone enters your library.
ATKM the best political novel I have ever read, with deep, rich and piercing observations made all though the story as it unfolds (the Stark version as well as the Stavros version). It's also one of the most underlined and personally annotated books I've ever read. There are memorable quotes throughout. A must read for anyone who enjoys great writing, and for anyone fancying anything political.
