Steve Israel: Big Guns
BIG GUNS, by U.S. Congressman-turned-novelist Steve Israel is a blunt and biting parody about guns and politics—think Thank You for Smoking meets the NRA. Based on real people and settings, it takes readers behind the scenes to the most private places on Capitol Hill and pulls back the curtain on congressional absurdities and machinations with the gun lobby.
Israel served as U.S. Congressman from New York for almost sixteen years, retiring in January 2017. “In Congress, I helped write anti-gun violence laws,” he says. “When I realized that Congress wouldn’t pass a single one, I left to write political satire—which at least has a better chance of actually being read.”
