THE TAMING by Lauren Gunderson

March 10th, 2013 | CF Monkey | 1 Comment

Southern Fried Politics…

Miss America holding a whip in her hands, rides a chariot led by Democratic donkey and a Republican elephant. What happens when a conservative senatorial aid, a liberal political activist, and a newly-crowned Miss Georgia walk into a bar?

Lauren Gunderson’s THE TAMING takes on America’s overheated political rhetoric, some surprising truths about our founding fathers, and the passions of three slightly insane women who just might be revolutionary geniuses.
