Letters to a U.S. President
Dram Books, 2002 - 180 頁
In 1994, David Kavanagh started a journal that became a series of open letters to then U.S. President Bill Clinton. For almost three months, up to the mid-term congressional elections, he compared their day-to-day lives, selecting snippets of poetry that seemed appropriate for the moment. Then the journal was forgotten. Rediscovered in 2002, Letters to a U.S. President is a sideways glance at presidential life in America from a London, UK, life which grows more calamitous by the day. Quirky and original, it offers a trans-Atlantic take on the age-old concept of parallel existence. Embattled President and hapless citizen are not just miles apart, they have a whole ocean between them and a world of difference. By the end, readers may wonder what the 42nd President might have made of these illuminating missives had he actually received them.
