New York Times Bestseller 

Following the success of New York Times bestseller Dumpty comes Volume 2 of award-winning actor and national bestselling author John Lithgow's satirical poetry chronicling the era of Trump madness. Darker, funnier, and more hard-hitting than ever, Lithgow writes with poetic fury and cutting satire, taking readers verse–by–verse through the last year of even more unthinkable and shocking real events surrounding Trump and his administration—including poems about the impeachment, Rudy Giuliani, Mick Mulvaney, Jay Sekulow, Jim Jordan, Roger Stone, and others. With completely new poems and never–before–seen line drawings, Lithgow will once again make readers laugh in frenzied times with this mix of striking and humorous prose—dismantling the reign of Dumpty one stanza at a time.
