Historical Fiction
My Enemy My Friend

I courted my wife during the Iranian Revolution.  It was an appropriate setting. As my own worst enemy, I channeled both the Ayatollah who needed an American Presidential candidate to defeat the Shah and the Presidential candidate who needed the Ayatollah to defeat the sitting American President. This book is based on my experiences and the observations of people no longer available for comment.  The names have also been changed.
