Review:

"An Engrossingly Clever Novel About Sex And The Presidency." -- Nicholas Von Hoffman "Quintessential Updike...[A] comic and melancholy reflection on politics and passion." -- The New York Times Book Review "Compelling...Alf's life and times are light and funny; Buchanan's are dark and serious. Alternating between the two, Mr. Updike entertains and instructs...in gorgeous prose." -- The Wall Street Journal
