Read full description of the books:
In this thinly veiled fictionalization of the Democratic Party since the late 1950's author Paul Trynka (whom I suspect is actually David McCullough using an alias) digs deep into why Liberal ideals have never risen to their rightful place in the pantheon of American history.
Using a made up character named Iggy Pop to represent the brilliance and visceral embodiment of the Thinking Left, we're taken on a roller coaster ride of the highs and lows of the party, what could have been and whose responsible . . . mostly a greedy corporate media and Air Supply fans (Republicans) . . . for making sure we (he) never becomes the rock star to rule them all.
And yes, Mr Pop doesn't always help matters. Just as it looks like he's recorded a record that will cure all the social ills of the common man for good, he goes on a heroin bender and gets more attention for things like taking a crap on stage behind the Marshall stacks (some metaphors were more eluding than others) than for refusing to compromise the punk rock life style (the single payer option) only to sell out, rise again . . . get by-passed 6 times by the Rock'n Hall of Fame and then chuck it all again for a new hot cuban girlfriend.
The sad irony of the man with the largest dick in rock (The Real American Dream), that somehow still feels inadequate (Liberal Guilt) is a touching, complex, powerful, but ultimately depressing story of our times.
I highly recommend it.
