Quick, go borrow or buy this book and share with friends! This is a consummate and delicious satire on Ottawa shenanigans, especially the type we have seen the last few years from a government that is redefining Canada as a military power that is soft on banks and hard on health care, education and ordinary citizens. Linda Svendsen is brilliant as are her characters, especially the women who live with or have to pay court to the PM. If you love this country, read it and discuss with your friends. Five stars.
