Rachel to the Rescue Summary

Rachel to the Rescue by Elinor Lipman

Rachel Klein is sacked from her job at the White House after she sends an email criticising Donald Trump. As she is escorted off the premises she is hit by a speeding car, driven by what the press will discreetly call 'a personal friend of the President'. Does that explain the flowers, the get-well wishes at a press briefing, the hush money offered by a lawyer at her hospital bedside? Rachel's recovery is soothed by comically doting parents, matchmaking room-mates, a new job as aide to a journalist whose books aim to defame the President, and unexpected love at the local wine store. But secrets leak, and Rachel's new-found happiness has to make room for more than a little chaos. Will she bring down the President? Or will he manage to do that all by himself? Rachel to the Rescue is a mischievous political satire, with a delightful cast of characters, from one of America's funniest novelists.

Rachel to the Rescue Reviews

'Like an inspired alchemist, Lipman has converted serious subjects into humour' - New York Times, 'A sweet, daffy comedy' - Slate, 'The Trump book that could only be published abroad' - Stacy Schiff, 'A deft and funny book. As usual with Elinor Lipman's characters, I can see it all so clearly on screen. Brava, sister!' - Maureen Lipman, 'A witty and mischievous comic novel [and] a bitingly funny satire on US politics in the age of Trump. Definitely a book of the moment' - The Shelf of Unread Books
