All the King's Men

Robert Penn Warren

Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Robert Penn Warren’s tale of ambition and power set in the Depression–era South is widely considered the finest novel ever written about American politics.
All the King’s Men traces the rise and fall of demagogue Willie Stark, a fictional character loosely based on Governor Huey “Kingfish” Long of Louisiana. Stark begins his political career as an idealistic man of the people but soon becomes corrupted by success and caught between dreams of service and an insatiable lust for power, culminating in a novel that Sinclair Lewis pronounced, on the book’s release in 1946, “one of our few national galleries of character.”

Customer Reviews

New best

My favorite book.

Put it right there, eye level, so it's unmissable when someone enters your library.

ATKM the best political novel I have ever read, with deep, rich and piercing observations made all though the story as it unfolds (the Stark version as well as the Stavros version). It's also one of the most underlined and personally annotated books I've ever read. There are memorable quotes throughout. A must read for anyone who enjoys great writing, and for anyone fancying anything political.

Good Book & Good Movie

I enjoyed both the book and movie (the old version). A good old fashioned dramatic story with memorable characters and plenty of action to keep your interest. A bit dated & long but enjoyable nonetheless...EAF
