Bob Levey (SLM 2012) is proud to announce the publication of his new novel, LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE.
It’s the story of a famous Washington newspaper columnist (Felder) who abandons journalism to run for Congress in Maryland’s Eighth District (Montgomery County).
Larry’s path gets complicated by oh-so-many things—love, corruption, those pesky reporters and the unforeseen. But the good guys win in the end, and loyalty wins most of all.
Bob Levey spent more than 36 years on the staff of The Washington Post. His daily column, “Bob Levey’s Washington,” ran for more than 23 years. Bob has also had long parallel careers as a TV talk show host, a radio commentator and a college professor. LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE is his first novel.
And no, good heavens no, he isn’t running for Congress.
He ran for the student council in the sixth grade and lost. That either cooled his ambitions or knocked some sense into him—whichever way you’d care to read it.
LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE is full of characters and scenes that will be very familiar to the LM family. It is set at various times at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, the neighborhood near Montgomery Mall, downtown Wheaton and the Capital Crescent Trail. Besides Larry, you’ll meet an array of characters who are very contemporary and very Washington—the successful Montgomery businessman, the crusty newspaper editor, the Girl Friday on Capitol Hill and the super-ambitious young reporter, among others.
