About this Item

A crime/espionage/social satire novel set around the time of publication. The title is a paraphrased partial quote of a line from Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: "Hain't we got all the fools in town on our side? And ain't that a big enough majority in any town?" The author was a speechwriter for Richard Nixon and he was also one of the best at coming up with great names for his characters. For instance in this book, Lucifer Dye, Homer Necessary, Victor Orcutt (who stated that ".before things get better, they must get much worse."), etc. 383pp. A near fine copy in cloth and boards with evidence of a tiny sticker removed from front pastedown, in a nearly fine, first issue dust jacket.
