This is the story of the election for a presidency, comparable to CP Snow’s The Masters. But here the competitors are in their seventies and the election revives the dormant conflicts that had tormented them as schoolboy adolescents.
But now, being old and living in the shadow of geriatric complaints and death, they posses a fiercer understanding of the things in life that matter: power, revenge, hatred, love and the failure of love.
