'Dogfight' by Calvin Trillin

Kerri's book Pick of the Week is 'Dogfight,' the latest book of Calvin Trillin's political poetry. 

Michiko Kakutani reviewed the book in verse for the New York Times:

The 2012 campaign is Trillin's focus in "Dogfight."

Its title invokes the Romney dog Seamus's plight.

That poor Irish setter on the roof of the family car,

Whose tale so doggedly stuck to the former Olympics czar.
