Glenn Beck Unveils His Upcoming Novel

0511book.jpgOver the last few years, conservative host Glenn Beck has emerged as a publishing star. This summer, he’ll test the waters with an adult novel published by Threshold Editions–the Simon & Schuster imprint publishing Lynne Cheney and Karl Rove.

Entitled The Overton Window, the novel will be released in June 15. Through pre-orders, the title is already rising up the Amazon rankings.

At an Orlando rally led by Beck, Philly.com gleaned this novel intelligence: “[Beck] described [the novel] as ‘a story of America in a time much like today where the people are confused,’ with a government in crisis and the rise of a citizens’ group called the Founders Keepers, which ‘leads to a battle and a civil war, and life is upside-down planetwide.’” (Via Gawker)

After the jump, watch a clip where Beck explains the Overton Window–the political theory behind his new novel.
