Dumpty by John Lithgow

Reviewed by Holly (Library Patron)

This book was an absolute read for me. I am a huge John Lithgow fan. I love his acting, singing, and writing projects. And this one did not disappoint. I am also a political junkie, so this book covered two personal interests. The book is so cleverly written. Words are selected with the utmost care and the meter of each poem is easy to discover as you read. Mr. Lithgow has also provided a brief current event narrative after each poem. With this minor addition the author has insured that these poems will provide the readers with the mindset he and the nation had at the time each poem was written. I highly recommend this book!
