Reggie Rivers Turns to Social Satire

Reggie Rivers, former football star and now sports commentator and author, summarized his two most recent books, The Colony and My Wife’s Boyfriend, during an interview at the Liberty On the Rocks holiday party. Briefly, The Colony uses a story of warring colonies of ants to criticize war generally and (so I understand) U.S. foreign policy in particular. (I wonder whether Rivers takes into account the history of who actually developed oil as a useful commodity in the Middle East.) My Wife’s Boyfriend involves some of the tensions and absurdities of disputes within Home Owners’ Associations.
