All the King’s Men

I’m rereading Robert Penn Warren’s All the King’s Men in order to lead our book club’s January discussion. We wanted to read a classic that resonates today and does this ever! Willie Stark wants to do good in Louisiana, but power corrupts. Jack Burden, the narrator, tells the story of politics and downfall, and I am hooked.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.

Let me know about a good book you've read recently, or about the book that's currently on your bedside table. Why did you pick it up? Are you enjoying it?
