Family Politics

The youngest of his family and pressured by sibling loyalty, Charles Daley agrees to help his conservative brother take on a Senate race against their liberal uncle currently holding the seat in this political family drama by John Buckley.

Working as a rock music critic and political reporter for a popular magazine in Manhattan, Charles Daley has worked hard to get himself out of his family’s political history and into his dream job. But as Charles puts it, “it’s a problem when you want to be a reporter and your family’s the news.”

Realizing he can’t run from his familial ties forever Charles gives into the pressures of sibling loyalty and agrees to help his brother in his campaign for Senate. The only issue is his brother is a strict conservative who happens to be running against their liberal uncle and foe currently holding the seat.

As the campaign progresses, Charles is taken on a roller coaster ride as he balances keeping his job and handling the numerous threats towards his brother’s campaign, including family skeletons, attempted and actual murders, and angry cousins who aren’t scared to express their frustrations.

“A wise, witty, wild, romp. A first-class piece of entertainment.” —Howard Blum, author of I Pledge Allegiance
