Seth Greenland's "The Angry Buddhist."

This year's election season is already proving to be full of drama and fireworks, but it doesn't measure up to the political drama in Seth Greenland's forthcoming novel, "The Angry Buddhist."

The book takes place in the days leading up to a November election, where the incumbent under-fire — a slimy congressman — is in a battle against a sexy, Sarah Palin-esque challenger. There's in-fighting, affairs and even a murder.


Seth Greenland, author of the novels "The Bones" and "Shining City," and was a writer/producer on the HBO's "Big Love."
