Exhausted by the election cycle? Need an escape no matter which side of the aisle you identify with? This new-in-paper laugh-out-loud satire is all at once absurdly funny and frustratingly reflective of the current political landscape filled with larger than life characters. From the earliest pages, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Reagan-wannabe politician Paine Wilson who early on a sweltering summer morning is the recipient of an enormous Fed Ex package containing nothing but a taxidermied aardvark. Anthony proceeds to explore the aardvark’s 19th century origin in Namibia, its journey through Victorian-era England, and its ultimate resting place on Wilson’s doorstep. A quick read that unveils what happens when one takes what one wants without regard for the consequences.
