Overview

The Badger Game by William Norris

Hot on the heels of the latest presidential news comes this hilarious account of the Presidential election as it might have been. Best-selling nonfiction writer William Norris turns his hand to comedy with a Mafia boss trying every trick in the book to seize the Presidency of the United States. The story is set--where else?--in Florida. Which just goes to show that authors can sometimes be more prescient than they realize. Can you say kidnap? Doppleganger? Just who is the Vice President anyway? Does the future of a nation rest on one man's birthmark? In this entertaining story, William Norris has brought together a colorful cast of characters and mixed them together. The result? A cocktail of sometimes lethal, always funny, episodes laced with wit and humor to keep you laughing until the end. William's timing is impeccable and his humorous writing is at times reminiscent of the good old British farce.

About the Author

William (Bill) Norris has been a professional writer since joining his local newspaper as an apprentice reporter at the age of 16. After working for a variety of newspapers in England and Africa, he was appointed Parliamentary Correspondent to the prestigious Times (of London) ten years later - one of the youngest ever to gain this position. He held the post for seven years, revolutionising the art of the "parliamentary sketch", then transferred to become Africa Correspondent for The Times, covering political events and wars in Biafra, Nigeria, Angola, the Congo, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

After turning freelance in 1980, Norris moved to the United States where he worked under contract for The Times and other publications for 13 years.

He became Associate Director of the PressWise Trust (a British media ethics charity) in 1997, in which post he counseled young journalists and promoted the cause of journalistic ethics. The latter, he said, was rather like preaching the virtues of continence to a shipload of sex-starved sailors. Six years ago he moved to the South of France, where he lives with his wife, Betty, two cats, and two exhausting dogs.
