  1. Hello

    I’d like to send you a review copy of our book Mr Trump goes to Washington - a satirical review of Mr Trump’s election campaign, and early days in office, which will be published in September (see info sheet, below).

    Can you please supply a contact name and address to whom the book should be sent?

    Kind regards.

  2. Thank you for your offer, but I prefer seeking out books (and occasional netgalleys) proactively rather than accepting review copies.
