Set in the seventeenth century, the novel uses the bloody religious conflict of the Thirty Years' War as the background for blending history with fiction through two primary plot lines. The first tells of Axel Oxenstierna, Chancellor of Sweden and the rallying point of the Protestant armies following the death of Gustavus Adolphus. Through his portrayal of Oxenstierna, Stacton also introduces us to such personalities of the time as Cardinal Richelieu and generals Tilly and Wallenstein. The second story is that of Lars Larsen, a young adolescent who, with his younger sister Hannale, wanders through an embattled Europe searching for the man who might be their only living relative

Stacton's gripping and atmospheric story revolves around the brothers Edwin and John Wilkes Booth, members of a famous theatrical family. Edwin is a great actor, himself a Hamlet-like character whose performance as Hamlet will make him an international sensation. Wilkes is a blustering mediocrity on stage who is determined, however, to be an actor in history, and whose assassination of Abrahim Lincoln will change America

Tom Fool by David Stacton( Book )

8 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Tom Fool (1962) David Stacton concluded a triptych of novels drawn from the history of America. For this final panel he turned his eye on politics. The titular protagonist is a fictional rendering of Wendell Wilkie, unlikely Republican challenger to Franklin D. Roosevelt in the presidential election of 1940. As 'Tom Fool' endures an epic campaigning tour of thirty-one states - assisted (or dogged) by his political advisor 'Sideboard' and husband-and-wife PR consultants the Pattersons - he finds himself uncomfortably reminded that America, in its vastness and contradictions, is more than one country, and a unique conundrum to one who would be President
