"What You Will on Capitol Hill”: Richard Tillotson

Richard Tillotson

Satire will always have a home as long as there’s a Washington DC... Its inner workings often illustrate Churchill’s adage that democracy is the worst possible form of government, except for all the others.   Washington insiders can be seen as putting on a show, altering their identities as needed in a comical roundelay…. Honolulu author Richard Tillotson looks at DC as a Shakespearian Comedy of manners in his new novel “What You Will on Capitol Hill.”
