A chance comment on Vermont's most popular talk show "Straddlin' the Fence" lands Darwin Hunter in a three-way race to be elected State Senator. Set against a political landscape as rocky and muddy as the garden during Mud Season, Darwin combats his wily, experienced opponents with his only long suit--the truth. THE KING OF VERMONT is part 2 of "Stories and Tunes," Stephen Morris's "four-part trilogy" of life in the rural North.

Stephen Morris is a business consultant and writer who lives in Randolph, Vermont. He is also the author of STRIPAH LOVE.From Publishers Weekly:
Midlife crises prompt strange, unpredictable behavior in the denizens of a rural Vermont town in Morris's second comic novel. Ophthalmologist Darwin Hunter, who decides to run for the Vermont state senate on a campaign promise of "total disclosure," reveals to voters the most intimate details of his personal life; his wife Sammi, declaring her need for a "multigamous relationship," moves out and hooks up with a 65 basketball star; ex-radical hippie Townshend Clarke transforms himself into an architectural maven and hatches a scheme to restore Upper Granville, Vt., to its pristine 1839 state. Set in the same fictive hamlet as Morris's Beyond Yonder , this gently sardonic satire, like its predecessor, pits "Chucks," the native Vermonters, against "Flatlanders," the invading urban refugees for whom home canning is a sacrament. Morris has mildly amusing fun with a large cast of deft caricatures as he spoofs New Englanders, back-to-nature types, political elections, yuppies and the lofty standards of private behavior demanded of politicians.
