From the publisher: "The book is a complex portrait of an eccentric private and public figure, Jerry Brown, former governor and current attorney general of the State of California. Fusing biographical commentary by the writer John Bowe, Brown’s own words, vintage press pictures, and a series of abstracted photographs by Aitken, Write-in Jerry Brown President considers a “high priest and low politician” whose career has been marked by a rare idealism and a distinctive intellectual curiosity."
