During this perambulation, he somewhat loftily observes the books his fellow passengers are reading and thus is able to boost his increasingly wobbly amour propre. Partly this had to do with its self-important cover, on which we find gold embossed letters and a stirring image of the White House at night; you can just picture it splayed open across the soft belly of some knackered executive as he sleeps in his club-class bed, having taken one too many champagne refills with his wagyu steak. Mostly, though, it seemed to me simply to be a better, more appropriate title than The President Is Missing.
cute things to make out of clay
The President is about to be impeached. Clinton faced his own impeachment scandal in the s, in the aftermath of his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky during the press tour for this book, Clinton said he has not and will not privately apologize to Lewinsky.
Collaboration is a murky trade, and it covers quite a range. But no joining of forces is more difficult to fathom than the partnership between two writers. Writing, like dying, is one of those things that should be done alone or not at all. So, when two writers decide to merge, what do they actually do? A tidy scheme for twin souls but otherwise, assuredly, a prelude to divorce. Fletcher, who liked to get by with a little help from his friends, later conjured a play with three other writers.
James Patterson is an advertising executive turned author who has achieved an industrial rate of production m-plus copies sold , often by using co-writers, but getting a former president on the ticket is his greatest publicity coup yet. The role of the protagonist inevitably prompts the reader to engage in a game of ticks and crosses, noting overlaps between Duncan and Clinton. The fictional president is a former governor of a southern state tick , shares a middle name with a great US leader Lincoln rather than Jefferson: tick , has an intelligent and impressive daughter tick , and faces impeachment proceedings that he insists are a conspiracy by opponents tick. However, Duncan is also a former war hero cross and a widower possibly making Hillary cross , two attributes that would have spared Clinton from being attacked as a draft-dodging adulterer. The report of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr into the Lewinsky business revealed that Clinton once gave his Secret Service detail the slip by removing a shoe that contained a GPS tracker; that moment of security truancy may have informed the titular premise of The President Is Missing , which is unusual among US political thrillers in including few scenes at the White House and none at Camp David. Unable to trust even his closest aides, Duncan, like Henry V before Agincourt, first secretes himself among his people, and then, like King Lear, sets up a hidden power base in the wilds.
