Professor Martin F. Mooney is a fading poster boy of the inner-city elites: Left-leaning, middle-aged and too frisky with his female students, he's looking for a way out of the university before he's pushed. Politics seems the obvious next step. Taking a sabbatical to work as election campaign manager for his girlfriend Lana, Martin soon learns to troll the depths of political chicanery: A rigged poll, paid agitators, secret alliances, media manipulation; is there anything he will not do in order to win? And in the end, will Martin choose love over betrayal in his quest for political victory? This contemporary satire set in Sydney, Australia is your perfect literary companion in the Trump-Brexit era.
