Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The concept behind this is shattering, the execution is brilliant and the fast and slick style a joy to romp through. Beaton wrote the novel, Drop the Dead Donkey, and the play, Feelgood, he is a satirist of the highest order and this leaves you shaking your head in admiration of his audacity. America is out to rule the world and finally has a fail-proof solution to the environmental crisis! Itâs quite startling.

Comparison: Ben Elton, Stephen Fry, Rupert Morgan.
Similar this month: Matt Beaumont, Carl Hiaasen.

Synopsis

Planet For The President by Alistair Beaton

Primary Colours meets Ben Elton in this satirical novel by the author of the hit play Feelgood.

It is the near future and things are not going well for the President of the United States. He wants Americans to be adored by everyone but half the planet seems to be in a permanent state of insurrection against US power. What's more, there's a growing environmental crisis that even he can't ignore. It's one thing when there are floods in Bangladesh, quite another when almost 2,000 Americans die in flooding in Texas. His advisers warn him he could be remembered as the President who wrecked the planet.

The President is persuaded of one simple fact: there are too many people in the world. Only radical action can deal with the problem. His advisors come up with a solution more ruthless than anything ever contemplated before. Appalled, the president refuses to go along with their plan. But it isn't long before he is committed to thinking the unthinkable ...
