The Lost Gospel of Donald by Preston Coleman

A not to be missed irreverent look at the lives and times of Donald Trump by Preston Coleman the King of Satire!

Preston Coleman, the author of this extremely witty book is a professor of communication with a doctorate in media studies. Anyone reading this clever story will not be surprised that he has won awards for his teaching, research, and satire.

At a time when many Americans, and indeed the rest of the world are frustrated and concerned about the words and actions of Donald Trump, through this clever work of historical fiction, the author gives his readers a satirical look at the life and times of this egotistical world leader.

The recent discovery of a previously unknown gospel in the basement of a Russian Orthodox church in Weehawken, New Jersey, written by Donald of Gaul has opened the eyes of the world in a revolutionary new way.

In this gospel, Donald Trump is Donald of Gaul, a wealthy entrepreneur with a hospitality empire. Forward-thinking he is always looking for new talent and acts, and having seen John the Baptist baptize Jesus he thinks they are magicians of the best caliber and admires their ability to draw crowds, just what he is looking for! And so the story continues bringing forth from me a stream of giggles as I read this talented author’s work.

With Donald of Gaul taking us through the four gospels, the New Testament, and the history of Rome from Julius Caesar to Nero, in his own unique ‘business speak’ he gives his reader his tongue in cheek take on the holy book and the teachings of its prophets.

Whilst the Lost Gospel of Donald is an extremely entertaining, ingenious work of fiction, it also, at the turn of every page, give its readers an interesting wealth of discussion topics, and copious material for debate. With clever comparisons, the author has highlighted some of the terrible career decisions which Donald Trump has made, and which have caused untold frustration to many people both in America and throughout the world.

In Conclusion: This irreverent, clever and witty book is just what we need! It sums up the worrying mind and makeup of this current world leader precisely, and I think it will become a classic, and afford talking points for years to come.

About the Author:

Professor of love, master of satire, expert fingerer of guitar strings and more!

Big heart, huge forehead, enlarged prostate–truly the total package.

Preston Coleman has been busy being born since 1961. He enjoyed an idyllic childhood in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, then suffered through a difficult adolescence that lasted 25 years.

By age 37, Coleman had earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism from the University of Georgia and a doctorate in media studies from the University of Iowa. In addition to teaching and conducting research, he wrote local newspaper columns and a series of political satires including:

Kingdoms of Paper and Glass
The Tennessee Leprechaun
The Oinky Boinky Machine
Elmo Frumpkin
and Those Arkansaw Bumkins.

These were published by his own Piccolo Press, so named (without irony) because it was small, but shrill. Rarely have an author and publisher shared such love and admiration. The end result was the creation of a personal library of over 1000 volumes, more than half of which Coleman wrote himself.

In the late 1990s, Coleman made the difficult transition from adolescence to middle age, and, at the beginning of the 21st Century, a second wrenching transition from local print media to the global Digital Age. He wrote and published realstupidnews.com, a news satire site that “s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d the truth, so you get more!” and newsprism.com, a news portal that ranked 500 news sites based on quality and orientation.

He was the official announcer and a performer at the 2004 Libertarian National Convention in Atlanta.

A vagabond professor of communication, Dr. Coleman has taught at numerous colleges and universities including the University of Iowa, Kennesaw State University, American Intercontinental University, Gainesville State College, the University of North Georgia, and Chesapeake College.

He’s won various awards including:

The Robert Bostrum Award for Outstanding Research
The Ann Matthews Purdy Award for Outstanding Faculty
The NISOD Excellence Award
Best Overall Satire, thesatireawards.com
Player of the Decade (1970s), Atlanta Colt Youth Association, 78-pound division

In 2020, Coleman resumed his writing career with the publication of The Lost Gospel of Donald and a compilation of previous work, Those Arkansaw Bumkins with The Oinky Boinky Machine and Elmo Frumpkin. He’s begun a new work, TBA, as he enjoys a quiet life on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with his wife, dogs, guitar, and kayak, in that order.

Those Arkansaw Bumkins: with The Oinky Boinky Machine and Elmo Frumpkin by Preston Coleman

Three rollicking, irreverent tales from Preston Coleman, the King of Satire.

Preston Coleman has done it again! For those who loved his witty and extremely irreverent political satire The Lost Gospel of Donald, this talented author has this time written three short satires which will have those of us, exasperated by the American political system, laughing until they split their sides.

The first “Those Arkansaw Bumkins” tells of the Bumkins household’s transportation by tornado onto the lawn of the Capital City Mal. Subsequently they have a meteoric rise to power as Co-Presidents of America in their new abode, the White Castle. Well, you can probably imagine the shenanigans which take place, but let me tell you, they are nothing compared to the tales you will read about in this entertaining and totally irreverent story. Let me just say that there’s a clue in the stories subtitle, “A Gremlin in His Goober.”

Then follows The Oinky Boinky Machine, which is the tale of Livingstone Ostrich, an Ostrich who bravely, after a great tragedy, decides to puts his head above the parapet. As with the popular classic Jonathan Livingston Seagull, written by Richard Bach, this is a tale of standing out in the crowd, and the consequences of doing so. Bravely the intrepid Livingston Ostrich decides that something has to be done to stop the horrendous Oinky Boinky Machine. But is he the bird to do it? Will he have the strength to overcome the cavernous machine, and its blood-sucking Vampire Pigs which reside within and keep it alive?

Last but not least is the tale of “Elmo Frumpkin. Poor Elmo Frumpkin is a forest hermit, who finds himself snatched from his peaceful life in the Deep South, and thrown into prison by Sher’f Gimby. There he discovers that his innocent behavior has caused him to be placed unwittingly into the criminal justice system. With his life changed forever Elmo and his far from conventional cell mate Hannibal Purdy escape from prison, and begin their rollercoaster of an adventure. Read it and laugh out loud, giggle or whatever takes your fancy, but most of all embrace wholeheartedly this talented author’s clever use of irony and humor.

Destined to go down in history as the King of Satire, Preston Coleman is a refreshing blast of fresh air, and just what his country and the literary world need!
