"Domestic Affairs"

Bridget Siegel, author of Domestic Affairs: A Campaign Novel, has worked on political campaigns at the local, state, and national levels. A graduate of Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, she is now an actor, writer, and political consultant. She lives in New York City.

Siegel applied the Page 69 Test to Domestic Affairs and reported the following:
Page 69 starts with a young fundraiser spewing inside-baseball campaign speak to some heavy hitting donors and ends with “Olivia sat up a little, jolted by the touch of his (the Governor's) hand on her shoulder ...". While a reader might be more intrigued with a turn of the page, when the Governor's hand falls to a comfortable resting place on the small of the young fundraiser's back, I do think page 69 is pretty representative of the book on the whole. If I've done it right it's a behind-the-scenes look at political fundraising with a behind-the-behind-the-scenes affair.
