As Anonymous, Klein wrote the best selling novel Primary
Colors (Warner Books, 1996) which was inspired by the 1992 U.S.
presidential race. The New York Times Book Review called it
one of the best political novels to appear in the latter half
of the twentieth century. Kleins contribution to the field
of political fiction was very much influenced by Robert Penn Warrens
novel All the Kings Men. Warrens 1947 Pulitzer
Prize-winning novel is considered one of the greatest political novels
of all time. It is loosely based on the life of Louisiana politician,
Governor Huey Long. Kleins lecture will be one of several events
