Ellery Hodder is speaking, retired college professor settled in the little upstate town of Colchester. A typical respected liberal of these days, he has long held large-scale ideas of political enlightenment, and now hes full of enthusiasm for putting these ideas into action in the small.

He jumps into the bramble bush of Colchesters local election. Before he emerges he has learned, among other things, that even with the best will in the world you dont take towns apart like watches to make them run better.The eyewitness narrator of this fast-moving and gently satirical novel is Bert Shattuck, home to spend a few months in the town where his family has lived for generations.

Bert has the outsiders point of view but the insiders knowledge of his multitudinous family and friends, and when Ellery joins forces with the minority party that offers symbols of change Bert knows there is excitement ahead, as well as some unexpected education for Professor Ellery Hodder.The drama of the hotly contested election builds up amidst a criss-cross background of the towns individual lives and opinions, which Ellery doesnt understand.

A love affair, an impending divorce, a fire, a murder, and some acts of terrorism take place before the vote is in.
