Jim Geraghty sees parallels between Howard Foster's novel and his own big government satire, The Weed Agency

From the February 28, 2017 edition of the Morning Jolt newsletter by Jim Geraghty:

The Unlikely Storytelling Magic Trick of Miranda's War

When Adam Bellow asked me to take a look at Miranda's War, the latest novel from Liberty Island publishing, I wasn't immediately hooked. If I thought making life in the federal bureaucracy funny and dramatic and interesting was a challenge in The Weed Agency, then Howard Foster was attempting the literary equivalent of the triple-axel jump, setting his story in the local conservation commission of a small town in Massachusetts.

And yet somehow Foster pulls it off, by remembering that all politics and all stories are like Soylent Green: They're made of people. What starts out as a pair of mundane fights about a giant peace sign painted on a barn and the restoration costs of a historical estate escalates into a statewide clash of philosophies, ideologies, egos, and a struggle for power and a clear answer to that most fundamental question, the one that has rocked the world from Brexit to the 2016 presidential election: Who will decide on behalf of the people?
