All About The Presidentsby J. J. Lauria
In "Foibles..." any reader
It was Lord Byron who penned in 1823, "Tis strange-but true, for truth is always strange; stranger than fiction." Then, later on Mark Twain wrote, "Why shouldn't truth be stranger than fiction? Fiction, after all, has to make sense." And what says the author of "Foibles..."? That truth, though often stranger than fiction, is not always so.
In "Foibles..." any reader with reasonable discernment would likely conclude it contains much strange fiction, and undeniably some truth. Separating the two is not the author's desire for his reading audience. It is rather to motivate readers-while entertaining them-to revisit history via biographies of our past Presidents, and other media sources be they literature or film/TV presentations, and taste of the times in which they lived and we didn't.
Now, what can you call a work mixing fact with fiction? Were it a play or film, "Docudrama" might fit. But being a book, that would be misleading, especially where much narrative is involved. And so, be it established here henceforth and forevermore, the coining of a descriptive name: "Faction", combining both fact and fiction! Yes, "Foibles..." is a work of Faction, and is crafted to provide for its reader, action!
Hopefully, you'll find it so. If not, then read a fraction of this faction before bedtime, have pleasant dreams, and call my receptionist in the morning to report your satisfaction.
