A novel of swine-size political ambition based on the true story of Pigasus, the pig that would be President.
America is more divided than ever. Angry mobs claim to have levitated Washington. Families are squabbling. Fashion is really bad and getting worse. Grown-ups can't understand the music. Yes, all seems lost in 1968, and the nation finds itself hungry for a new kind of leadership, one that, if it can't bridge the divide, can at least add pork to the barrel! A new political party rises from the chaos, and its candidate (a pig!) is nominated on national TV!
But the pig is not safe. It is messing with the machine, man! Its own political party wants to barbecue it. The government is hunting it as evidence. The meatpackers circling Chicago seek it for its bi-products. And caught between are two Vietnam vets: one who actually believes it will be elected President and vows to defend it with his life. And the other, who does neither. Only a narrow escape over the most unlikely of routes offers the trio any hope of of longevity, but they must survive it first.
