Waldoboro, ME--Goose River Press is proud to announce the release of Dan Coonan’s debut novel, Presidential Spirits, a political Field of Dreams.
A moderate president struggling to lead amidst the country’s dysfunctional polarization suddenly stumbles upon a mystical, vintage, centuries—old saloon where he can drink at a nightly party with every former president, living or dead. He relishes this escape and the camaraderie with his new drinking buddies who understand his problems and sympathize with him. When he realizes that they all want only the best for both him and the country, unlike what he experiences in Washington each day, he starts to wonder if somehow this saloon can have greater value. Can he tap into the collective wisdom of Washington, Jefferson, the Roosevelts, Kennedy, Reagan and all the others to craft a solution to fix the country’s broken and divisive political dynamic?
The book has been released in paperback. To request a courtesy copy or an author interview call (408) 476-7191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Author Dan Coonan has crafted a masterwork of political observation, light satire and genuine exploration of the human condition in this thought-provoking read. . .The real charm is in the presentation of the personalities and ideas of presidents we know, and those we think we knew. . . Fun and entertaining, but also highly poignant. . . A fascinating read.
