Available wherever books are sold.


From Steve Israel, the congressman-turned-novelist who writes “in the full-tilt style of Carl Hiaasen” (The Washington Post), comes a comic tale about the mighty firearm industry, a small Long Island town, and Washington politics.


“The only way (readers) will put this book down is when Charlton Heston’s ghost pries it from their cold dead hands.” —Booklist


“Israel recalls Carl Hiaasen and Christopher Buckley in their liberal bents and sense of the perniciously absurd.” —Kirkus Reviews

Congressman Steve Israel

After sixteen years in the United States Congress, including four as Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Steve Israel left—unindicted and undefeated—to provide the public with a no-holds-barred understanding of Washington through political satire.


His first novel, The Global War on Morris, debuted in 2015. The Washington Post described it  as “an unexpected delight... so spirited and funny.” Chris Matthews called Israel “downright hilarious.” And the Daily News (New York) wrote: “Steve Israel reveals his inner Jon Stewart in his debut novel.” The book was optioned to Rob Reiner for television development. Not unlike so much in Congress, it awaits further action. Israel’s second novel, Big Guns, skewers the gun lobby and will be published this year.
