Description

The alternate timeline is not greatly different than our own, but different enough that it makes you think.

Because of this, his book ends up being more an artifact of the Clinton years than an enduring work of alternate history that is valuable in its own right. The novel is split into two sections: JFK is one half and Clinton the second, and both men, whose handshake was captured on camera in actual history, veer from that innocent point to grand reversals of fortune in an alternate, more Democratic dominated universe.It is easy to nitpick Silver’s postulations, but they nonetheless offer an interesting commentary about the politics of the 1980s and 1990s. While the document was designated "for the President's eyes only," Allen would end up seeing more than he bargained for that day in 1981: a naked president.

By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. The Vietnam era generation (of which I am not) and those longing for the success of the 90's will appreciate the intertwining of worlds both invented, inverted, and completely true--as JFK survives Dallas, Clinton is a whistle blower, Sinatra lives the latter part of his life sans tongue--while sex permeates the novel just enough to make it as slick as the real and reinvented presidents who play the lead roles. Alternate histories have become a genre in their own right, with WWII being by far the most popular historical period re-examined, but this is the first alternate history I've encountered that addresses perhaps the most fascinating single episode of the 20th century: the JFK assassination.e. a Newt Gingrich presidential claim--this novel appears perhaps even more relevant now than it did the year of its release (2000).
