POLITICO Novelized

Tanabe's roman a clef portrays "cut-throat political rag."

Publisher's Marketplace reports:

Former Politico writer Karin Tanabe's THE CAPITOLIST, in which a 20-something journalist leaves a cushy NYC magazine job for DC's hottest (and most cut-throat) political rag, where she uncovers a juicy scandal involving a senator that could make or break her career, to Sarah Cantin at Atria, in a nice deal, by Bridget Wagner at Zachary Shuster Harmsworth Literary Agency (World).

The book seems to be clearly about POLITICO who's "cut-throat" rep — we should note — we always thought was a bit overblown.
