For the past year, American bookstores have been drowning in O.J. books, Nicole books, Kato books, Kato the dog books….Now, thanks to the Republicans’ November triumph, they are being flooded by a genre even more pernicious than quick ‘n’ dirty Simpson books: quick ‘n’ dirty GOP manifestos. The sexiest of the Republican offerings is House Speaker Newt Gingrich‘ To Renew America. Newt’s little white book makes politics a 12-step program: how America can break its debt addiction and end its abusive relationships with Democrats. Gingrich appears at 1 p.m. at the Trover Shop, 221 Pennsylvania Ave. SE. FREE. (202) 547-2665. (David Plotz)
