President George Washington's Great-Nephew, Author Austin Washington, Is Writing A Book On President Trump; Book To Be Released In Near Future
July 4th news on a new humorous book from a great-nephew of America's first U.S. President George Washington
Commented Mr. Washington on his forthcoming book, "I have two things I've been putting off publishing, but this Trump book recently came to me in a flash. It's fiction, unlike my first published book. But more than laughing out loud, when I wrote it, I literally sincerely and honestly fell off my chair laughing. This time, it's laugh out loud, possibly teach a lesson, and likely cause injury. How many books can literally deliver a one-two-three punch?
When asked why he is writing this book, Mr. Washington replied: "Well, the angels are in the details. The broad plot is something I rather expect to happen in the next few months, or at least I wouldn't be surprised. Donald Trump kidnaps the Queen of England to impress an internet blogger he is smitten with, and madcap mayhem ensues. I suppose the only thing that makes it fictional is that it hasn't happened yet. Of course, President Trump doesn't actually kidnap her. He takes her into protective custody. Same actions, different words. Speaking of which, another author could take these same actions and do what he likes with them. But would he make you fall off your chair? Without pushing you, that is? I don't think so."
About the Author
Austin Washington is a great-nephew of George Washington. He earned his masters and did post-graduate research focusing on colonial American history, and is a writer, musician, entrepreneur and global traveler. He returns to an old Virginia family home whenever he can. Austin's first book takes a common criticism of his academic writing - "You're not writing a newspaper editorial, you know!" - and turns it into a virtue, taking a subject dry and dusty in other's hands and giving it life. He has lived abroad much of his life, most recently in Russia, and visits friends from Sicily to Turkey to Bangladesh and beyond. His earliest influences as a writer were Saki, Salinger, and St. Exupery, although in more recent years he has got beyond the S's. As for historians, he is partial to the iconoclast Gibbon, who wrote history to change the future. More details on Mr. Washington's "Trump book" will be revealed soon. He will have a web site for his new book very shortly too. His current web site can be accessed at www.austinwashington.com
Meantime, Mr. Washington wishes everyone in the nation a wonderful, safe Fourth of July holiday.
