On the surface, Samantha Joyce is a hard-working, idealistic political aide trying to make a difference in the world as part of the healthcare team of her boss, a Senator from Ohio. Beneath this highly professional veneer hides Sammy Joyce, daydreamer extraordinaire. Between practising the art of living without limbs, defending herself from bear attacks and begging her Japanese Fighting Fish not to commit hara kiri, Sammy meets Aaron Driver, a smooth speechwriter working for a rival Senator. Balancing seventy-hour working weeks, an exciting love affair and an over-active imagination fuelled by coffee and cosmopolitans would keep anyone busy. But Sammy's also trying to run a national political campaign whilst battling against journalists, treachery and a tendency to sabotage herself-Praise for Sammy's Hill'Gore's narrator, 26-year-old healthcare analyst Samantha Joyce, is an utterly modern tumble of contradictions-Sammy's Washington [is] an electric town full of Machiavellian schemers, principled idealists, backstabbing diplomats, determined romantics, and one intuitive telemarketer. Gore is a child of the Hill, and she knows her town; the result of her light and juicy tale is, for better or worse, an absurd and convincing rendering of everyday life in the political jungle.' O, the Oprah Magazine'Sammy's Hill is a laugh-out-loud literary debut, certain to draw comparisons to Bridget Jones's Diary.' Newsweek'It shouldn't come as a great surprise that the first novel by Kristin Gore, daughter of Al Gore, is laugh-out-loud funny.' San Francisco Chronicle
