1981 novel about the KGB plot to plant a stooge as President of the United States

Josh Glenn says: Here’s an extremely timely episode of Benjamen Walker’s Radiotopian podcast, Theory of Everything. In it, Benjamen and I discuss the obscure spy novel The Twentieth Day of January, about a KGB plot – uncovered by a British intelligence agent – to get their stooge elected president of the US! We speculate about what Trump, and the KGB, may have learned from this book… and how it explains, well, everything.
