About the Book:

Celebutante LONDON COMFORT's coke-filled nights with Hollywood party boys are tame compared to what she finds in the White House -- a world just as exploitive but vastly more dangerous. Appalled, she enlists her black female security guard and an earnest young Secret Service agent to topple the President. "LONDON COMFORT" takes its readers from the celebrity mansions of Bel Air to the governor's mansion of Montgomery, Alabama, from the stately rooms of the White House to a tattered tent in Pakistan's Toba Kakar mountains, where Osama Ben Laden's would-be successor plots his next move against the Great Satan. On one level, "LONDON COMFORT" is a satire inspired by American politics. But at its core, and through London Comfort's adventures, it’s essentially the story of women, young and old, black and white, who struggle to take control of their lives, each in her own unique way.
