The End of Rocky's GOP

Availability: Ready to download

This novel recounts the sweeping changes in Republican politics from FDR to Trump and the impact of these changes on two Republican families from New England—the Fletchers and the Keegans.  Growing up in Connecticut, Nora Fletcher never cared for her parents’ politics. Instead, she preferred spending time with her grandfather, Linton Fisker, on his standardbred horse farm This novel recounts the sweeping changes in Republican politics from FDR to Trump and the impact of these changes on two Republican families from New England—the Fletchers and the Keegans.  Growing up in Connecticut, Nora Fletcher never cared for her parents’ politics. Instead, she preferred spending time with her grandfather, Linton Fisker, on his standardbred horse farm in Bennington, New Hampshire.  Grandpa Fisker taught Nora harness racing and how to treat, train, and race his championship stock. He looked forward to the day when Nora would take over the Fisker Stock Farm and continue the customary trips to the winner’s circle.  Before Linton Fisker died, however, Marty, Nora’s mother, and Lillian, Nora’s grandmother, convinced “Papa” to change his will and not leave the farm to Nora but rather to her younger brother Ricky Fletcher, who showed no passion for horses. Like his mother Marty, Ricky was more interested in Republican politics, and to please his mother, Ricky married into a staunchly Republican family. As Republican politics turned more strident, combative, and exclusive, Lintie Fletcher, Ricky’s son, became enamored with his grandmother’s adoration of Donald Trump and a brand of Republicanism filled with extremist rhetoric and hatred.    Although denied ownership of her grandfather’s horse farm, Nora Fletcher never blamed her grandfather. Instead, she revered her memories of him, memories which helped her regain a sense of personal worth and dignity.  Yet she still faced a family which valued status and money more than they valued her.245 pages      Stephen R. Rascher teaches theater at the University of Hartford, West Hartford, Connecticut, USA.
