In a couple of years the Bush family saga could likely become a television series, in the style of "Dynasty" or "Dallas." It's got major powerbrokers, scandal, intrigue, and heartbreak. For those who can't wait and are happy just listening, Kitty Kelley's reading is breezy, melodic, and unencumbered by literary pretense. Many of the "sensational" revelations will be familiar to students of Bush family enterprises; however, there are few compendiums that follow the evolution of the family's particular political style over time. Many may object to this gossipy narrative's no-holds-barred approach, but at least there's no sanctimony. J.W. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
