Product description

A loosely fictionalized account of Governor Huey Long of Louisianna, All the King's Men, tells the story of Willie Stark, a southern-fried politician who builds support by appealing to the common man and playing dirty politics with the best of the backroom deal-makers. Though Stark quickly sheds his idealism, his right-hand man, Jack Burden retains it and proves to be a thorn in the new governor's side. Stark becomes a successful leader, but at a very high price, one that eventually costs him his life. This award-winning book is a play of politics, society and personal affairs, all wrapped in the cloak of history.
