Mr B's review

Whether it makes you laugh out loud or sigh with despair, this strictly unauthorised collection of well referenced tweets and quotes, whilst not deserving a space on our poetry shelves, definitely fits alongside our other humour titles.  In a time of alternative facts, aggressive handshakes and armed with a limited vocabulary Rob Sears provides us with much needed satirical relief.  And I think we can all appreciate the photoshopping of the dust jacket, even down to the small hands.



What if there’s a hidden dimension to Donald Trump; a sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing Trump’s words for signs of poetry.

What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the 45th President of the United States’ tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering them, Sears unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.

This groundbreaking collection will give readers a glimpse of Trump’s innermost thoughts and feelings on everything from the nature of truth, to what he hates about Lord Sugar. And it will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise and delight both students and critics alike.

This timely publication also includes Sears’ scholarly footnotes and introduction, in which he excavates new critical angles and insights into the President’s poetry which the casual reader might initially overlook.
