Confirming my suspicion

February 8, 2010

From Max Abelson’s review of Hank Paulson’s new book:

His memoir is like Tolstoy. It gives the spectacularly unsettling sense that world history is decided by an assortment of guys who are improvising, and may not be particularly good at it. Only, unlike in Tolstoy, there’s a lot of nausea.

I read Game Change this weekend and enjoyed it more than I should be admitting here. Still, the feeling I had after reading it was close to the one Ableson had about “On The Brink”. Except the nausea was all mine. Who the fuck is driving this thing?
