Product Details:

"In 2005, Charles Firth travelled to the US and over a period of six months invented five fictional American characters, each of whom represent a different point of view in American politics, and sent them out into the real world to see how successful they would be. Charles' hypothesis was simple: whichever character got the furthest in America's fiercely competitive marketplace of ideas would be the victor. Would it be the conservative economist, the national security consultant, the left-liberal advertising executive, the working class white trash or the Muslim poet? The result is a compelling tale of an Australian "outsider" (and his dubious acting skills) coming to grips with America, Americans and the American dream, by confronting real Americans with their own rhetoric."
