Overview

From the author of "Youth in Revolt" comes this hilarious new “musical” novel of teenage sisters from Ohio who “light a small cherry bomb” under their minister father’s campaign for the Vice Presidency of the United States. While one lovely sister dallies with a picketing environmentalist, her sexy identical twin conspires with a trench-coated reporter to “blow the lid off the elections.” The pace is hectic and the laughs non-stop as the wild and eccentric characters suddenly break into “song.” Payne’s sharply focused wit displays more bite than even the candidates’ attack ads. Cast your vote now for the funniest, most inventive novel of the year!

Editorial Reviews

staff reviewer
"Payne has a knack for pace, rhythm, and humor as his characters pause frequently to sing satirical songs in this uproariously funny farce of politics, guns, corporate money, the Christian right, and more."
Josh Emmons
"Civic Beauties parodies presidential races with caustic vigor, beating around the Bush like a vulture circling its prey, all the way down to its twin teenage narrators . . . His work is a shining reward for any prospector."

Pulled from the same manic-depressive vein as 'Youth in Revolt', Civic Beauties is definitely worth the time it takes to read it.

I think this book was really good. I don't really read too many books but this one was really good. I think it is pretty life like instead of the usual fake stuff you get in a book.
