About this title


More so than any of the founding fathers, Ben Franklin personified a free and independent spirit. Working class and considered unfit for public office in the old world, Franklin championed the common man, making labor honorable and worthy of fully participating in government. One wonders what Franklin would think if he could see America now.

In this novel, Bently Spanworth, while duplicating Franklin's experiment with lightning accidentally transports Franklin into the twenty first century. Franklin's reactions to our world are both amusing and troubling. His recommendations for putting the Republic back on course would greatly reduce the power of political parties, limit their control of the purse, and substantially increase the number of women in congress.

While here Franklin is smitten by a shiny black Prius Hybrid, and he and Bently set out in the Prius to assess the outcome of the 1776 revolution; visiting with common folks to determine whether, 'all are created equal,' and, 'the pursuit of happiness,' have any meaning in the twenty first century.
