The Ernesto "Che" Guevara School for Wayward Girls: A Novel of Politics

Ripe and ruthless Beltway satire by a former Presidential speechwriter. Peter Holmes Dickinson (of the Main Line Dickinsons), a former top speechwriter for President Tyler "Ty the Guy" Ferguson, is a charming snob, a part-time coke-head, full-time womanizer, and in big trouble.

A Good Read

I begin this review of "The Ernesto 'Che' Guevera School for Wayward Girls" by Bill Gavin with two pronouncements: I am a friend of Bill Gavin's and, like Bill, I am a former presidential speechwriter (in my case for President Ford). Having made these disclosures, I now admit that I thoroughly enjoyed Bill's new novel. Gavin has gotten his story and his collection of characters exactly right. "The Ernesto "Che" Guevera School for Wayward Girls: A Novel of Politics" tells the tale of troubled presidential speechwriter Peter Holmes Dickinson and his encounters with a veritable zoo of politicians, political activists, journalists, pundits and would-be statesmen. Many readers of this novel may say: "You've got to be kidding, Washington can't be full of bizarre characters like this!" I'm here to tell everyone that Bill Gavin's story is exaggerated a bit here and there; but, the White House and the Capitol is loaded with characters like his. I know, I've been there! Above all, "The Ernesto 'Che' Guevera School for Wayward Girls" is an enlightening inside look at politics, as it is now practiced in Washington. It is funny and enjoyable: but, most importantly, it is well written and, as they say, "a good read".
