"At the center of Favorite Sons are two men, friends and rivals --- industrialist Roger Albright, the last hope of a famous but impoverished old family, and Senator Worth Patterson, heir to a railroad fortune, to the manner born. This is their story, but it is also the story of the woman they both want, of the South they hope to change, and of the sons and daughters who seek to succeed where the parents failed. Set against them is the forbidding figure of Joe Crain, a media genius from the New Right who hates what they stand for, who will use any means to destroy them. The story of Albright and Patterson is told in a big, unabashedly ambitious, and powerfully moving novel of America and American politics."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
