Banquet Before DawneBook - 1976
After serving his Brooklyn district for many years, Congressman Sullivan discovers that his once comfortable Irish American majority has given way to a diverse district of blacks and Hispanics. Challenged by a more liberal opponent and desperate to maintain his seat, he painfully learns that he and his views are outdated and irrelevant. But Sully won't bow out gracefully, and the fierce ensuing campaign brings new insights to the meaning of democracy and the terrors implicit in this swiftly changing world. This compelling and insightful story of a political last hurrah transcends politics and puts a human face on the workings of the American democratic system.
