A blast of presidential wackiness from the past

Being ThereBeing There by Jerzy Kosiński

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had to go back and read this with the crazy Republican primaries going on in the States right now. Modern technology makes the plot implausible in 2016, but the essence of the story still holds true. Basically the only thing that separates to powerful from the weak is perception and a good metaphor. Also, people are willing to believe what they want to believe and fill and the gaps of what they don’t know with their imagination. Great quick read, funny, tender, and beautifully written.
