In a narrative rich in humor and uproarious dialogue, Off the Reservation explores modern presidential politics and whether honesty can find a place within it. Congressman Evan Gorgoni of Bloomington, IN, has served eight terms in a dysfunctional Congress and reached his limits of frustration. A medical event brings on the epiphany that there is no point in continuing to serve. But his frank expression, on Meet the Press, of his rationale for ending his political career is met with the unbidden call that he seek the White Housean unlikely destination for a vegan Congressman with a disdain for political posturing. If he's going to do it, he's going to do it as no one has done it before ... Featuring 20 vegan recipes and a solution to Americas Electoral College problem, Off the Reservation is an original take on the art of the possible.

It is a completely gorgeous and rewarding experience. --Jason Alexander, Actor The book is called Off the Reservation, but its 100% On The Money about how far removed political discourse has strayed from reality.
