Traces the fortunes of Jack Gance--a man on the rise in American politics--as he moves from Chicago pollster to Senator in Washington, D.C

From the Back Cover:

In this passionate and revealing tale of Washington politics, Ward Just tells the story of a young pollster who becomes a savvy political insider and eventually a U.S. senator - but not without paying the usual dues. And the payment turns out to be a dirty, or at least a cloudy, business. Jack Gance tells how the dues are paid and how one political devotee spends his life in politics, wastes his love on married women, and finally learns who his true mistress is.

About the Author:

Ward Just is the author of fourteen previous novels, including the National book Award finalist Echo House and An Unfinished Season, winner of the Chicago Tribune’s Heartland Award. In a career that began as a war correspondent for Newsweek and the Washington Post, Just has lived and written in half a dozen countries, including Britain, France, and Vietnam. His characters often lead public lives as politicians, civil servants, soldiers, artists, and writers. It is the tension between public duty and private conscience that animates much of his fiction, including Forgetfulness. Just and his wife, Sarah Catchpole, divide their time between Martha’s Vineyard and Paris.
