This greatest political novel of Robert Barr's most beloved books has been written in years. Barr was a Scottish-Canadian author who relocated to London in 1881 where he founded the magazine "The Idler" in 1892 in collaboration with Jerome K Jerome. In 1895 he retired from its co-editorship and became a prolific novelist. "The Victors: A Romance Of Yesterday Morning & This Afternoon... " is a stirring story of a "boss" and others. Patrick Maguire, big, brawny, and smooth of tongue, early decides that there is a good thing for him in the big city, and he starts after it. How he succeeds - becoming the big "boss" by methods that are known to be practical and practiced by the initiated- is Mr. Barr's theme. Another "live issue" treated by Mr. Barr is that of "Christian Science". The work has a climax whose strength has rarely been equaled in modern fiction.
