This Hardcover Edition of John Lithgow's A Confederacy of Dumptys: Portraits of American Scoundrels in Verse (Dumpty, 3) is autographed by John Lithgow.

The next book in John Lithgow's New York Times bestselling series

Following the success of New York Times bestsellers Dumpty and Trumpty Dumpty Wanted a Crown, award-winning actor, author, and illustrator John Lithgow presents the third book in his runaway hit series. A Confederacy of Dumptys takes us through a history of twenty-five "American Scoundrels" in this all-new collection of Lithgow's satirical poems and illustrations.

While the Trump Era was rife with corruption and abuse of power, it was nothing new. Through Lithgow's cutting humor, you will read about a rogues' gallery of villains that came before Donald J. Trump, powerful men and women who were corrupt, venal, criminal, adulterous, racist, or just plain disgusting. With dark and lyrical stories from across American history, you will learn about long-forgotten figures and bad actors of today, including the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, the perpetrator of 19th century women's pyramid schemes, and participants in both the Watergate scandal and the Capitol insurrection. Trump and Nixon show up, of course, but also Leona Helmsley, Boss Tweed, Typhoid Mary, Newt Gingrich, Ted Cruz, and many more. Skipping through time, and delivered with classic Lithgow wit and style, A Confederacy of Dumptys is an exuberant reminder of how not to repeat history.

About The Author

John Lithgow careens wildly from one thing to another. True, he has won Tonys, Emmys, and Golden Globes as an actor on stage and on big and small screens. But what other award-winning actors can claim to have written best-selling children's books, have performed with a dozen American Symphony orchestras, have sung at Carnegie Hall in the company of Met Opera stars and danced with the New York City Ballet? As an author, he has written a memoir proudly displaying blurbs from John Irving and Gay Talese, and as a poet, his book of doggerel political satire arrives in October 2019. He is an actor at heart, and in all these other fields of endeavor, there is a fair measure of playacting involved. But he nonetheless deserves his inclusion on Amazon's Author Central and is proud to be there.
