A black man as the President of the United States? Written in 1964, The Man was burned in states of the southern U.S. And banned in others as it rose to the top of the New York Times bestseller list, selling more than two million copies. Today it is more relevant than ever, when the possibility of an Afro-American president no longer seems an impossible dream. A series of accidents places mild-mannered Douglas Dillman in the White House. A gentleman who shirks publicity, he is now at the mercy of spotlight: he is plotted against by the Ku Klux Klan and other right-wing terrorists; while his own son, a black militant, accuses him of being dangerously conservative. Dillman faces impeachment and threats. One would-be murderer nearly made it to his home before being arrested. Actor James Earl Jones- who starred in the movie version of The Man, called it "a prophetic novel." It is considered by many to be Wallace's greatest achievement. About The Author: Irving Wallace was born in Chicago. His best-selling award-winning novels have been translated into numerous languages and have sold some 250 million copies around the world. He is considered one of the five most widely read authors of modern times."
