One of the books I read over the holidays was American Hoax by Charles Firth. This book is apparently what he was working on while the rest of the Chaser guys were doing The Chaser’s War on Everything.
The book is an exploration of different aspects of U.S. politics from an outsider’s perspective. Of course, it is a bit difficult to get a good view of the different political movements from the outside, so he creates a number of characters representing different points on the political spectrum as a way to become part of the various movements. Each of these characters was given a suitable back story, including Wikipedia articles for some and websites for others.
The book is definitely worth a read. I am not sure if it has been released outside of Australia yet, but is available from Dymocks.
