Bush jnr salutes his father with mundane folksiness
41, A Portrait of My Father. By George W Bush. WH Allen, €25.
One evening in the late 1960s, George W Bush drove home roaring drunk from a tennis match and crashed into a neighbour’s rubbish bin. He was sent upstairs to see his namesake father, at the time a congressman and rising star in the Republican Party. Bush senior simply lowered his glasses, gave his son a frosty stare and went back to reading his book.
