Jonathan Clark Patrick’s fascination with the American presidency began during his childhood in the region around Boston, where so many key events in U.S. political history have occurred. He now resides in the San Francisco Bay area with his wife of forty-five years. Patrick drove a cab during graduate school, writing his first poems while studying American literature. He put aside his writing as he became more successful in his professional services career. Inspired by the momentous 2008 election, Patrick returned in Songs Presidential to his lifelong goal of exploring the interaction between history and poetry.
