Ten of the most curious novel-writing politicians

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the most curious novel-writing politicians.

A couple of wannabe-presidents made the list, as did one actual president:
Jimmy Carter

As you might expect, the ex-President's foray into fiction - The Hornet's Nest - is a serious and hugely self-serious undertaking, a big historical novel set in Georgia and the Carolinas during America's revolutionary war.
Read about the other politician-novelists on Mullan's list.
