Brighton Publishing releases “The Bobby Fulton Story” by Robert Starosciak
In an intimate portrayal of the inner workings of a real political campaign, novelist Robert Starosciak creates a finely tuned plot filled with passionate human interaction.
Synopsis: The Bobby Fulton Story is a fictional account of a boy who grows up in small town in America in the 1960s, attends Princeton University, and dares against all odds, to run for a seat in a New Jersey congressional district. Enlisting the help of a college friend and political pro, they plot a strategy for him to become the youngest person ever to win a national election in the Garden State.
This story is a realistic mirror into a much simpler time; a time when youngsters played baseball games in the summertime on makeshift fields; when a tiny working class town could flourish; a time when a new president made us feel hopeful. The Bobby Fulton Story is also an intimate portrayal of the inner workings of a real political campaign. It is a tale of a quest against an intimidating political adversary who will do anything to succeed, and the age-old story of when loves finally deceives in the dirty game of politics.
Above all, this fictional tale reminds us how we have changed in our journey from 1963. A time when we could trust and respect our elected representatives;
“Author Robert Starosciak presents a work filled with passionate human interaction in a plot superbly crafted by a master wordsmith,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Comparable with the works of best-selling author Tom Clancy, The Bobby Fulton Story takes readers into the high-stakes world of politics where financial influence and corruption seem commonplace.”
