From the Inside Flap:

David White's satirical farce, FACTORY GUYS, takes the reader on a hilariously wild ride through international trade relations, the national political process, the seamier workings of the retail car business, and even a few choice facets of man-woman relationships.

The story opens with the entrepreneurial Chinese Premier Wu Chen Lieh's decision to ramp up the East-West trade battles by taking the US car market by storm with the Red Whippet family sedan, the foremost product offering of the Long March People's Cooperative Automotive Manufacturing Company.

Diplomatic sparks fly as Chinese manufacturing and marketing ineptitude run headlong into American regulatory bureaucracy, a situation further complicated by an American president whose ludicrous sexual misadventures leave him open to blackmail by a Chinese government eager for the dollars that a substantial presence in the US automotive market would generate.

White's finely crafted characters, who also include a brilliant and spectacularly beautiful Chinese interpreter, a bumbling American vice-president, a toadying attorney general, a horse-trading California automobile dealer and a vacuous bubble-headed EPA chief, lurch fitfully from one chokingly funny vignette to another as this tale works it's way to a wonderfully entertaining conclusion.

But for all it's zany moments, FACTORY GUYS manages to touch on some serious themes and issues, giving it an almost eerily disturbing plausibility for any recent obeserver of American politics.
