Ralph Nader and His 700-Page Novel

only-the-super-rich-can-save-us.jpgTomorrow Seven Stories Press will release a 733-page “utopian fantasy” written by one unexpected novelist–crusading politician Ralph Nader.

According to the Washington Post, the press printed 40,000 copies of “Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us,” and has already printed 5,000 more in anticipation of Nader fans rushing to bookstores. In a distinctive plot twist, the book features Warren Buffett, Ted Turner, Bill Cosby, and Yoko Ono as heroes “who conspire to set off a progressive revolution.”
