An illustrated parody marrying America’s favorite pantsuit-wearing politician with an ancient poetic form.

The poetic form of the haiku is pretty old, widely known, and occasionally kinda funny. In these ways it resembles Hillary Rodham Clinton. Now this insightful collection of poetry distills the essential details of HRC into seventeen syllables where thousands of articles and biographies fall short–or, rather, long. Hillary Clinton Haiku will not only help you make the right, informed decision at the polls–whatever that may be–but it will also help make the vast contemporary machine of politics, glass ceilings, and scandal a little easier to swallow.

About the Author

Vera G. Shaw was born in the United States, but her soul resides in a Japanese garden. By day, she chops wood and carries water; by night, she weds the complexity of haiku to the simplicity of American politics. A poet of many shifting selves, layered as a lily blooming on a still pond, she lives in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, with two cats named Democracy and Tu-Fu, respectively.

Emmy Reis was born and raised in Japan between her Japanese mother and American father. Following her older sister, who is a fine artist in New York, she moved to the city and graduated from The New School’s Parsons School of Design in 2013 with a BFA. Emmy is currently based in New York and Kyoto, running around drawing and painting in her two favorite places on earth.
