    ✓ berkingmad The Coyotes of CarthageThe funniest most incisive commentary on the banality of evil that I have ever read this is the story of money in American politics It's both a little lesson in how elections are stolen and a detailed portrait of our country With a full cast of well developed characters who are simultaneously caricatures and deeply recognizable individuals it's also an excellent novel No one is admirable No one is perfect Everyone is completely relatable I highly recommend this book It might make you throw up a little in your mouth but that's politics
