Sinopse

The President’s Desk is the story of America as seen through the eyes of its most powerful piece of furniture. Standing in the most important office in the land for over a hundred years, it has been sat at by no less than twenty-four of the greatest men who ever lived (I’m leaving out Nixon, obviously). This epic retelling of the history of the United States takes us from the desk’s early life as the humble timbers of a barquentine frozen in the waters of the Arctic, through its transformation by decree of Queen Victoria, to over a century in the Oval Office as an eventual antique.Contains 1000 UNTOLD SECRETS of the American presidency, including:Why Jimmy Carter destroyed WashingtonHow George W. Bush killed John HowardWhen Calvin Coolidge appeared nude on his own coinWho drowned Warren Harding in his own hotel roomWhat Herbert Hoover really thought when he was attacked by Rin-Tin-TinWritten by Shaun Micallef, star of Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell, Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation and, to a lesser extent, Mr and Mrs Murder.'One of the greatest comic voices of our time' Matt Lucas, Little Britain'Australia's finest satirist and comic surrealist.', Ben Elton'Read it for too long and you get grin aches in your jawbones.' The Herald Sun‘Shaun Micallef has a gift for the surreal. The English language is a sunlit garden. Shaun has a Harley-Davidson and a cast-iron alibi. He will be home by nightfall. You may hear some noise. It will be made by you. You will feel much better afterwards.’ John Clarke
