9780156030960: All the King's Men

Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men" is generally considered the finest novel ever written on American politics. Set in the 1930s and first published in 1946, it traces the rise and fall of Willie Stark who began his political career as an idealistic man of the people, but soon fell prey to the corruption of success. Steven Zaillian's ("Schindler's List") adaptation of "All the King's Men", featuring an all-star cast led by Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Patricia Clarkson, James Gandolfini, Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins (Columbia Pictures) is scheduled for release in late 2005/early 2006.

Review:

PRAISE FOR "ALL THE KING'S MEN""Over the course of more than two centuries of vivid political history, there is perhaps only one full-blooded American novel of politics that plunges deep into the hearts of its characters and therefore into the hearts of its readers, thus rising to the top ranks of American fiction. That is Robert Penn Warren's lush "All the King's Men"."--"Los Angeles Times Book Review""It's a measure of the enduring worth of "All the King's Men" that Willie Stark has entered our collective literary consciousness, in the company of Captain Ahab, Huck Finn, Jay Gatsby, Holden Caulfield, Rabbit Angstrom, and very few others."--Joyce Carol Oates, "The New York Review of Books"
