Nader goes hollywood

Advocate turns in first fiction book

Ralph Nader’s gone Hollywood. Sort of.

Nader, tireless crusader for the consumer, perennial presidential candidate and author of many nonfiction books taking on everything from General Motors to the government, has made his first foray into fiction.

“Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!” due out Sept. 22, centers on 17 rich icons with a political bent, including Warren Beatty and Warren Buffet, and their fictional plan to turn the country’s fortunes around back in the year 2006. The book, from Seven Stories Press, is what Nader calls his “answer to Ayn Rand.”The enigmatic Beatty even blurbed the book on Amazon.com, and pondered with Nader the what-ifs had his famously noncommittal stand on running for office gone a different direction:

Nader asked Beatty how he would have fared running against Arnold Schwarzenegger for California’s governorship in 2006. To which Beatty replied, “I would’ve creamed him.”
