THE BUSHES Portrait of a Dynasty

by | Read by Harry Chase

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

THE BUSHES tells the Bush family story without any dirty laundry. For example, George W's National Guard unit is called the "Campaign Unit," alluding to the political connections of its members. In THE FAMILY, Kitty Kelley's less flattering biography, the same group is called the "Champagne Unit," suggesting instead a fraternity of wealthy party boys. The reading by Harry Chase is dignified and knowing--in the style of a loving and respectful friend who views the family foibles in a generous and heroic light. The malapropisms of both Georges are seen as endearing frailties while dubious campaign tactics are matters of "steely determination." The Bushes, after all, are only human. This vision of the First Family will appeal to listeners in the majority party. J.W. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
