A BOOK NEVER MORE TIMELY THAN IT IS NOW
THINGS THAT GO TRUMP IN THE NIGHT
Poems of Treason and Resistance
The funny, wicked and brilliant political parodies in Paul Fericano's newest collection of poems, Thing That Go Trump in the Night: Poems of Treason and Resistance, help us navigate our way through an alternate reality where everything--government, education, religion, music, art, literature, film, cartoons, nursery rhymes and every facet of consumer and popular culture--is all about Trump.
Using his skill as a narrative poet, Paul Fericano takes on a president who hates being mocked almost as much as he hates to read. From "The Adventures of Huckleberry Trump" and "Trump with the Wind," to "The Ghost of Hamlet" and "William Carlos Williams Trumps Himself," Fericano becomes an instigator of good trouble; a rare breed of poet who tells the truth with a laugh.
THE BULITZER PRIZE
"With his own original and distinct brand of humor, Fericano is in the big leagues with writers and satirists such as H. L. Mencken, Lenny Bruce, Paul Krassner and Rita Mae Brown."
"In the vast literary universe of sober careers and serious awards, it's quite possible that Mssr. Fericano is the "Weird Al" Yankovic of modern American poetry."
