All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren. Upper School Fiction. Recommended by Tim Carey. A political novel focusing on the rise to power of Willy Stark, the central character modeled after Huey Long, the Governor of Louisiana, who was assassinated in 1935. A powerful character study of both Stark and the narrator, Jack Burden whose life is similar to that of Stark. Mr. Carey's favorite book in high school.
