Praise for Hope Never Dies:
An Official Summer Read of Publishers Weekly and The Interrobang

A 2018 Goodreads Choice Award Finalist

"[Hope Never Dies is] a roughly 300-page work of political fanfiction, an escapist fantasy that will likely appeal to liberals pining for the previous administration, longing for the Obama-Biden team to emerge from political retirement as action heroes. But it's also at times a surprisingly earnest story about estranged friends who are reunited under strange circumstances."--Alexandra Alter, New York Times

"It's a giddy premise, a bit of Resistance wish-fulfillment for those who'd like to see Biden and Obama trading one-liners and cracking skulls."--New Yorker

"While readers are sure to get a kick out of the codenames and inside jokes used playfully throughout, Hope Never Dies is an intriguing saga that doesn't sacrifice momentum for winks and nods."--Entertainment Weekly

"It's easy to imagine that if these fist-bumping brothers were ever to become a modern Sherlock and Watson, the world might be a better, more interesting place."--USA Today, ★★★ out of four

"Obama and Biden are the ultimate crime-fighting team in Hope Never Dies."--Washington Post

"An ambitious and completely successful novel."--Booklist

"Deeply weird and very funny."--The Wall Street Journal

"Step aside Holmes and Watson; back off Poirot and Hastings. A new pair of amateur sleuths are hitting town this month: Barack Obama and Joe Biden."--The Guardian (UK)

"Shaffer has sublimated liberal grief, nostalgia, and fantasy into a sort of allegorical potboiler."--Slate

"A novel nostalgic for a feel-good moment in US politics--one that now seems far in the past."--Quartz
