About the Book
In THE POTUS CHRONICLE, regular guy Joe Pritchett has a deep dark secret, or to be more precise, he has an extraordinary power––the power to live inside another person’s mind. As the reader quickly discovers, this is not just the mind of any person, it is the mind of the President of the United States.
The narrative that follows is a compelling glimpse of the youthful, charismatic, newly elected President Andrew Pollard who, during a time of great social unrest and political intrigue in the not too distant future, is trying to maintain order and do good in the world. Simultaneously, in alternating vignettes, we are privy to the unexpected and ultimately shocking response our unlikely chronicler has to this President. Both narratives, told with insight and careful attention to social and political detail, lay bare the disturbing reality of today’s world of broken promises and failed desires.
The Potus Chronicle is one of those rare novels that the reader will either love or hate. There is no in-between. But hate it or love it, no one should delay reading this book, for it is guaranteed to change the way one views American politics!
