Last December I watched Advise and Consent, the excellent 1962 movie by Otto Preminger. The film is based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel with the same title by Allen Drury published in 1959.
Thomas Mellon, whose last novel, Fellow Travelers, I liked a lot, has written a paper on Allen Drury's Advise and Consent in the New York Times Review of Books for the fiftieth anniversary of its publication. The paper is somewhat critical...
Despite of that, Advise and Consent
remains attractive. Maybe as a summer read?
