Award-winning actor and bestselling author John Lithgow wields a whip-smart, satirical pen in this poetic diatribe chronicling the last several abysmal years in politics. With lacerating wit and his signature humour, Lithgow gives readers a moment to exhale amidst trying times as he takes us verse by verse through the comedic history of Donald Trump's presidency, lampooning the likes of Betsy DeVos, Anthony Scaramucci, Scott Pruitt, Paul Manafort, Trump's doctors, and many more. Illustrated from cover to cover with Lithgow's never-before-seen line drawings, the poems collected in Dumpty draw inspiration from Mother Goose, A.A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, and Rodgers & Hammerstein. John's unmistakable voice rings through every poignant limerick and verse, with poems like 'Trumpty Dumpty,' 'Mike Pence, the Cheshire cat,' and 'My Favorite Lies'. A YUGE feat of laugh-out-loud lyrical storytelling, this hilarious and timely volume is bound to bring joy to poetry lovers, Lithgow fans, and, let's face it, most Americans.
