Ghosts of Presidents Past-A Reckoning

Newsweek's James Crowley described the author's new work this way in his 10/22/20 article the same day as the final presidential debate:

 

"What would past presidents tell Trump? This new book imagines just that. 

 

While there have been rumors and legends of ghost sightings and past presidents haunting the White House for years, presidents that have lived in the historic residence rarely count their predecessors among their critics. Author James Mikel Wilson's recently released book, though, imagines what past commanders-in-chief would tell the current president if they could have a Dickensian encounter with him.

 

In the allegorical novel, President Daniel Hands (nicknamed "Little Big Hands") serves as a stand in for the real incumbent."
