Sometimes The World Catches Up
Scott Simon's satirical second novel about political corruption in Chicago is called Windy City (Random House, 2008). The Daily Beast offers an excerpt here (story via Galley Cat). I guess it's no surprise that after Governor Rod Blagojevich allegedly tried to peddle Obama's senate seat, the book got hot. Good for Simon. Sometimes the universe cooperates and gives number two a boost, though couldn't the universe have picked someone more obscure to boost? Oh well, such is life.
