There's no such thing as "quite enough" of Calvin Trillin. And thanks very much to Powell's for having him appear at the Burnside store in December. What a treat!

"Synopsis" by , In a laugh-out-loud book of political verse and personal observations, Calvin Trillin provides riotous accompaniment to this year’s presidential election, in which Obama and Romney will “dogfight” to the end.

Here America’s preeminent humorist satirically skewers the current occupant of the White House, along with all his Republican challengers — from Mitt to Newt, Perry to Paul, with dash of Bachmann and Santorum thrown in for good measure. A campaign that’s given us so much material — Super PACs and sudden memory lapses, the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, Mormons and libertarians, dogs on cars and open marriages — has finally found the perfect chronicler. Once again, Calvin Trillin takes his poetic license to the wittiest possible extreme.
