Reviews

A Mother Jones Best Book of the Year "Hilarious. . . . A pleasure to read. . . . [Close] has a light, precise touch about the way a young marriage works when the partners are caught between old ideals and new realities." --Ron Charles, The Washington Post "Inspired by Close's own experiences moving to Washington for her husband's work on the Obama campaign, The Hopefuls is blisteringly honest about the circus of American politics and Washington's exhausting culture of competition--one that that renders people outside of political circles virtually invisible." --Meredith Turits, Elle "I couldn't put down this juicy novel, which is all about what striving to make it in politics does to relationships." --Megan Angelo, Glamour "Captivating. . . . Close, whose husband worked on Obama's campaign, uses her knowledge of this world--and her experience as an outsider--expertly. Beth's conversational narration feels like peering into the diary of someone who shares your deepest insecurities." --Isabella Biedenharn, Entertainment Weekly "New York newlyweds head to D.C. to--what else?--chase their dreams. Actually, just Matt's dreams. His wife, Beth, isn't all that impressed by the surrounding political haughtiness until she meets another couple, Jimmy and Ash. The Hopefuls will make you rethink inviting your best married friends over for dinner." --Marie Claire "A much lighter, funnier version of House of Cards--imagine the jealousy and ambition of the Underwoods married with the humor of a sitcom like New Girl with its focus on friendships and playing at adulthood." --Lauren Stacks, Chicago Review of Books
