A comic story about a philandering high-school history teacher in the midst of a student-body election gone haywire *Author: Perrotta, Tom *Subtitle: A Novel *Publication Date: 2004/12/30 *Number of Pages: 208 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 5.25 *Height: 8.00
From the Publisher:
In one of the funniest, most insightful, most surprisingly touching novels of recent times, Perrotta "captures the texture of high-school life in a refreshingly unromantic manner" ("Time Out New York"). Soon to be a major motion picture from MTV Films and Paramount, starring Matthew Broderick.Tracy Flick wants to be President of Winwood High. She's one of those ambitious girls who finds time to do it all: edit the yearbook, star in the musical, sleep with her English teacher. But another teacher, staunch idealist Jim McAllister, thinks the students deserve better. So he persuades Paul Warren-a good-hearted jock-to throw his hat into the student council's elections. But that puts Paul's sister Tammy in a snit. So she runs too, on an apathy platform-before starting a real campaign--to get herself kicked out of school.
Annotation:
A political satire about an election for school president in a New Jersey high school. The narrative alternates among the six candidates, who range from a maniacally ambitious girl named Tracy, to a reluctant jock named Paul, to Paul's sister Tammy, who is in love with Paul's girlfriend.In this political satire--which is, hilariously, about an election for school president in a New Jersey high school--the narrative alternates among the six candidates, who range from a maniacally ambitious girl named Tracy, to a reluctant jock named Paul, to Paul's sister Tammy, who is in love with Paul's girlfriend. In 1999, ELECTION was made into a very funny movie starring Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"It's hard to pinpoint where the generally entertaining story goes wrong. But it feels simultaneously footloose and overplotted..." 01/15/1998

Washington Post Book World
"'Election' proves once again that Perotta is a breezy writer--sometimes hurricanic, often wispy. He's probably worth sailing with for a while." - Linton Weeks 05/17/1998
