The Captain and the Glory

Satire. Partisans love satire that pokes at opponents, and we bristle when satire hits any targets we support. In his satire titled, The Captain and the Glory, Dave Eggers focuses on the incumbent United States President, so how you assess Trump will likely lead you toward or away from this book. It’s clear that Eggers views the situation in the United States as dangerous and destructive to norms, values and the institutions that form the fabric of democratic life. This is a look at how the ship of state is being steered, and Eggers concludes that the state of the union is perilous. Sometimes satire can make us smile or laugh. This satire makes us think. Approach or reject as you are inclined. I’m deep in thought. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Captain and the Glory from
