A Time to Run: A Novel
The national best-seller with "a plot line that seems ripped from the headlines" (Associated Press) is now available in paperbackjust in time for the fall elections. The "compelling novel of friendship, idealism, and corruption and the behind-the-scenes machinations that go into political deals" (Booklist) by U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer garnered a huge amount of attention in both red and blue states when it was first released. The popular and outspoken author, who in the 2004 election received more votes than any non-presidential candidate in history, "brings been-there nuance to the back-biting, hazardous personal disclosures and naked power mongering" (Publishers Weekly) of politics today. Lively and informed, A Time to Run introduces three unforgettable characters, whose friendship and betrayals shape not only their lives, but also the Supreme Court and the future of the country.
