The Day of the Donald: Trump Trumps America! A Completely Untrue, Utterly Unauthorized, But Not Thoroughly Impossible Thriller

Andrew Shaffer. Crooked Lane, $14.99 trade paper (288p) ISBN 978-1-68331-045-7
Bestseller Shaffer skewers presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump in this amusing political satire, often using Trump's own words as his weapons. He also takes wicked swipes at other politicians, including Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Hillary and Bill Clinton. Eighteen months into Trump's presidency, he sends White House aide Emma Blythe to hire sleazy blogger Jimmie Bernwood to ghostwrite his new autobiography, America's Greatest Decade. Bernwood quickly learns that the ghost he is replacing, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Lester Dorset, has vanished. Bernwood also discovers Dorset's secret tapes of his interviews with Trump, revealing excerpts of which are sprinkled throughout. Meanwhile, the outlawed Socialist Justice Warriors, whose members are mostly former "Bernie bros," want his help. Shaffer's zingers include new Trump products (Trump Whiskey) and unlikely appointments (Clint Eastwood as Secretary of Transportation). Though Shaffer (Fifty: A Parody) spares no one, the Donald takes the brunt of his sharp barbs. (June)
