A rugby novel and a thriller, Caveman Politics is a tragicomic look at the lowdown politics of a small Florida town. Joe Dolan is a reporter who plays rugby in his spare time, and hangs out with the strangest athletes ever to grace the pages of a novel. When their black teammate is accused of raping a white woman, all hell breaks loose. The D.A. is out for his head, and Joe and a few rugby players set out on a quest to exonerate him. Along the way they encounter an Elvis impersonator who may truly be the King himself, and a life insurance salesman with a death wish. The first novel from Jay Atkinson, whose Ice Time has enjoyed great success.
