This collection of short stories includes innovative tales of an aspiring politician, an encounter in the film festival toilets, being stranded in the Fiji airport by George Speight's coup, and a lonely farmer who buys armor on the Internet and jousts in Palmerston North. These stories make an immediate impression with their vigorous, often outrageous humor and with their firm grounding in New Zealand's country towns and suburbs. But their darker subtexts soon become apparent, as does a passionate engagement with social and political issues.

A captivating look at one of America's most prominent and fascinating public figures Bestselling author, war hero, presidential candidate, champion of the most politically sticky issue to rock Washington since Watergate-campaign finance reform- there may be no better known senator than John McCain. From Democrats to Republicans, many Americans relate to John McCain's straight-talking form of politics. In Man of the People: The Life of John McCain, political journalist Paul Alexander offers the only objective, in-depth account of this remarkable politician's journey-from Naval Academy student to Presidential hopeful. Readers will follow McCain from his rich Navy roots through his twenty-one year tour in the Navy, and then behold as he evolves into one of our country's most distinguished yet controversial political leaders. With insider access, Alexander flushes out the personal history to present a candid portrait of the political evolution of McCain. From the WWII hero grandfather who aggressively helped destroy the Japanese military machine to McCain's growth from Navy plebe to Reagan foot soldier, Alexander uncovers what makes McCain tick, how he evolved into a politician with a cause that has endeared him to Democrats and antagonized the Republican party leadership. Political insider, radio talk show host, and well-known journalist Paul Alexander followed McCain from the Presidential campaign trail to stumping for campaign finance reform. McCain's life is not only the story of the most compelling politician since Ronald Reagan but also the history of the transformation of American politics over the last thirty years. Through McCain's personal history-from Vietnam veteran to Reagan go-to guy to a key figure in the Keating S&L crisis to military campaign critic, Alexander pulls back the public curtain to reveal the private man. In doing so, he exposes military machinations, Vietnam controversy, POW torture, mental depression, and political intrigue. John McCain continues to push the political system, thus capturing the attention of the American public. The straightforward, no-nonsense style that has become his hallmark shines through every page of this telling biography.

Man of the People is an incredible novel by first time author, T. Spencer Adams. It is great reading and could be the text book for Political Science 101. After carefully developing the title character, Adams provides a simple insight into what has gone wrong with the U.S. political system, and what it will take to fix it. Adams weaves the lesson into a fascinating story about a retired everyman, J.T. Spencer, who is suddenly thrust into the national limelight of presidential politics. As the story unfolds, you find your self worrying not only about our hero, but the fate of our country as well. J.T. Spencer's presidential campaign was more than a political phenomenon. It was a clear indication of the level of social unrest that existed through out the entire country. But three truly unique circumstances had to come together at the same time to create the perfect political storm of social rebellion. The first was the public's pervasive lack of trust in the entire political system; a distrust that had been building since Watergate and had reached critical mass during the last two administrations. The second factor was one of simple technology. The spread of personal computers and the ever increasing number of people whose primary source of information was the internet, made possible a new type of grass roots campaign. The third and final factor was the intense media scrutiny focused on presidential candidates. Every aspect of the lives of public figures, especially those who would aspire to public office and political leadership, was fair game for the evening news.
