DC By the Book mapping project is in full bloom with many sites of D.C. literature placed on the map.
Two more novel candidates are the classic Gilded Age by Mark Twain and Young Adult fave author Rachel Cohn's You Know Where to Find Me.
Plots abound with Americans seeking their fortunes throughout the land. Prominent roles are played by hapless and corrupt congressmen in shaping the nation's economy. Readers of today can find much that signifies the current Congress and economic outlook.
Washington, D.C. is brought to life with painfully funny descriptions of such places as Georgetown University and events such as garden party fundraisers for local politicians. The novel engages the dual personalities of Washington, D.C. -- the federal and local.
