All the King's Men is a loosely fictionalized account of Governor Huey Long of Louisiana. Set in the 1930s, this is the story of Willie Stark, a southern-fried politician who builds support by appealing to the common man and playing dirty politics with the best of the back-room deal-makers. Though Stark quickly sheds his idealism, his right-hand man, Jack Burden, who narrates the story, retains it and proves to be a thorn in the new governor's side
