The Presidential election in the United States is over and the pundits have moved on, but Calvin Trillin’s Dogfight will have you reminiscing and maybe smiling, no matter who got your support. “The 2012 Presidential Campaign in Verse” recounts all the highlights from the primaries through to the Ohio count – in rhyme.
A good friend alerted me to this enjoyable retake on recent history. Sometimes the poetry is forced, but the satire is biting and the absurdities laughable.
I might have to check this one out. I love laughing at poltics.
My husband laughed through it too, although I think he was attracted by the cover.
