(From the publisher):
Meet Bruce Gold...
He's a professor who hates teaching, a writer of unread books...father of three, brother of six, son-of-a-tyrant and stepson of a dingbat...he's married to a perfect wife who bores him...engaged to a sexy heiress who can help him...and in love with his daughter's randy schoolteacher...he hates power but wants to be Secretary of State...the President admires him; his family thinks he's a dummy.
From Coney Island to the White House, in outrageous encounters with friends, enemies, uneasy politicians, easy women, the hard-hearted and the weak-minded Gold sets out to set his world right. He probably won't make it. But then again...
