PARTY LIKE A PRESIDENT: TRUE TALES OF INEBRIATION, LECHERY, AND MISCHIEF FROM THE OVAL OFFICE

 

 

By Brian Abrams 
Illustrated By John Mathias

 

There’s the office: President of the United States. And then there’s the man in the office—flesh-and-blood, prone to temptation, and looking to unwind after a long day running the country. Celebrating the decidedly less-distinguished side of the nation’s leaders, Party Like a President: True Tales of Inebriation, Lechery, and Mischief from the Oval Office offers a compelling, hilarious, and trueAmerican history on the rocks—a Washington-to-Obama, vice-by-vice chronicle of how the presidents liked to party. From explicit love letters to slurred speeches to nude swims at Bing Crosby’s house, reputations are ruined and secrets bared. 

 

Illustrated throughout, by local artist John Mathias, with infographics (James Garfield’s attempts at circumnavigating the temperance movement), comic strips (George Bush Sr.’s infamous vomiting incident at a state dinner in Japan), caricatures, and fake archival documents, the book has the smart, funny feel of Mad magazine meets The Colbert Report.  Plus, it includes recipes for 44 cocktails inspired by each chapter’s Partier-in-Chief.
