About A Confederacy of Dumptys:

Following the success of New York Times bestsellers Dumpty and Trumpty Dumpty Wanted a Crown, award-winning actor, author, and illustrator John Lithgow presents the third book in his runaway hit series. A Confederacy of Dumptys takes us through a history of twenty-five American Scoundrels in this all-new collection of Lithgow’s satirical poems and illustrations.

While the Trump Era was rife with corruption and abuse of power, it was nothing new. Through Lithgow’s cutting humor, you will read about a rogues’ gallery of villains that came before Donald J. Trump, powerful men and women who were corrupt, venal, criminal, adulterous, racist, or just plain disgusting. With dark and lyrical stories from across American history, you will learn about long-forgotten figures and bad actors of today, including the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, the perpetrator of 19th century women’s pyramid schemes, and participants in both the Watergate scandal and the Capitol insurrection. Trump and Nixon show up, of course, but also Leona Helmsley, Boss Tweed, Typhoid Mary, Newt Gingrich, Ted Cruz, and many more. Skipping through time, and delivered with classic Lithgow wit and style, A Confederacy of Dumptys is an exuberant reminder of how not to repeat history.

JOHN LITHGOW is an actor with two Tonys, six Emmys, two Golden Globes, and two Oscar nominations. He has starred in the hit TV series 3rd Rock from the Sun, Dexter, The Crown, and Perry Mason, and in critically acclaimed films such as The World According to Garp, Terms of Endearment, and Bombshell. Lithgow has performed on Broadway 25 times and in England with both the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre. In addition to the New York Times bestsellers Dumpty and Trumpty Dumpty Wanted a Crown, he has written nine children’s picture books, and his recordings for kids have landed him four Grammy nominations.
