      This Hardcover Edition of John Lithgow's Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse is autographed on a bookplate by John Lithgow.

      Award-winning actor and bestselling author John Lithgow wields a whip-smart, satirical pen in this poetic diatribe chronicling the last few abysmal years in politics. With lacerating wit, he takes readers verse by verse through the history of Donald Trump's presidency, lampooning the likes of Betsy DeVos, Anthony Scaramucci, Scott Pruitt, Paul Manafort, Trump's doctors, and many others. Illustrated from cover to cover with Lithgow's never-before-seen line drawings, the poems collected in Dumpty draw inspiration from A. A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Mother Goose, and many more. A YUGE feat of laugh-out-loud lyrical storytelling, this hilarious and timely volume is bound to bring joy to poetry lovers, political junkies, and Lithgow fans.

      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.
