Abstract:

Chief and most unbelievable character in this self-proclaimed "novel of the new American revolution" is Arkansas Representative Timotheus Denney, who is cast as the legislative wizard and bourbon-breathing Grand Dragon of all the sheetless Klansmen on Capitol Hill. This Ozark Ozymandias wants the Government to build him a $2 billion Denney Dam back in Yell County, Ark. But he faces an ironic choice: the dam will be voted out of committee only if Denney pledges support for a civil rights bill. Never, he yells, and threatens to touch off race war if the dam doesn't go through. But before Denney can rouse his rabble, he learns that his son David (he has another son, but he is half-Negro and does not count) has been arrested with a bunch of freedom riders and beaten to sour mash in jail. It is enough to make a man get religion--and that is what old Tim Denney does. Before anyone could say John Brown, he votes for civil rights, gets his dam, retires from politics, and is named Best Christian of the Year. --Time 3 July 1964.
