Eryll, a teenager you love to hate, is a domestic cuckoo placed into the heart of the American family dream — and, more importantly, into the American democratic model.
Eighteen-year-old Eryll Wray is the newly discovered natural son of a popular state politician. He is taken into the bosom of the Page family just at the point that Eryll’s mother dies and his previously unknown father is elected governor. Ever-increasing paranoia fuels the youngster's hatred and rejection of the hand of friendship from the Page family.
Political buffs will love the bustle of the behind-the-scenes image-makers and lobbyists, and groan with recognition at the adulation for Eryll’s outpourings of hate.
