November is a political month, and given current events, books don’t get much more topical than this one. “Advise and Consent” follows the confirmation of Robert Leffingwell as Secretary of State. However, Leffingwell’s confirmation is endangered by evidence that he belonged to the Communist Party. How the characters respond and their efforts to spread or suppress these revelations form the basis of the novel.
