Landfall

This darkly humorous tale looks at the life of George W. Bush, with an emphasis on his second term as president and the handling of the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina. The insights do not stop and start with those events though, and there's also a large cast of characters vividly depicted here ranging from Larry King to Condolezza Rice.
