Tell It Like Tupper by J. Mark Powell, 272 pages
J. Mark Powell was born in St. Joseph and moved to Trenton when he was five years old. He's been a journalist and is now director of communications for the South Carolina attorney general. He also writes a good story!
Powell knows his way around a political campaign and it shows. This story is set mostly in Iowa, during a presidential primary campaign. Glenn Tupper is a small business owner and family man who happens to meet a presidential candidate because of a broken down car. That chance meeting changes both of their lives - and the presidential race.
