A modern classic as wise and timely as ever
Being There is the story of a mysterious man who finds himself at the center of Wall Street and Washington power—including his role as a policy adviser to the president—despite the fact that no one is quite sure where he comes from, or what he is actually talking about. It is a brilliantly satiric look at the unreality of American media culture that is, if anything, more trenchant now than ever. —Grove Press
A quirky, brilliant novel starring Chauncey Gardiner, an enigmatic man who rises from nowhere to become a media phenomenon. — Newsweek
Being There is one of those rare books which echoes in the mind long after you have finished it. It will survive as a seminal work of the Seventies. — New York Post
