Here's the publisher's description of the novel (which you'll note has a blurb from Larry David on the cover):
Seth Greenland’s timely new novel is set in the high California desert between the trailer parks and amphetamine labs of Desert Hot Springs and the classic mid-century architecture of Palm Springs. In this sun-blasted territory, with its equally arid social culture, a fiercely contested congressional election is in progress. The wily incumbent, Randall Duke, is unburdened by ethical considerations. His opponent, Mary Swain, a sexy, well-financed newcomer, does not have a firm grip on American history or elemental economics.
Meth! With "Breaking Bad" approaching its final season, I was a little worried that America's scariest drug would be seeing less airtime. What a relief to know it might be making another appearance as a background element in a political drama.
