Summary

All the Queen’s Horses and All the Queen’s Men is the first book in a trilogy of political novels by Chase Baldewyn. Written before Trump’s campaign and election, the trilogy provides insight as to how and why Donald Trump would be elected. The trilogy is based on ethnographic research conducted over a decade on billionaire plutocratic families in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The novel reveals how and why plutocrat billionaires deceive the public and value loyalty over competence as Donald Trump seemingly does, and how plutocrats have worked to eliminate the middle class through deceptive egalitarianism and philanthropy while concurrently disparaging the need for excellence outside of their small peer group of billionaire businessmen. The novel’s protagonist is a plutocrat billionaire, Rolf Lambert, whose deceptive populism is revealed as actual elitism when advising his granddaughter, Berkeley, to model herself after British royalty for which Berkeley pays a heavy price at story’s end.
