About the Author:

Author Debra Trione began work on A Perfect World in 1997 after serving on the President's Council on Sustainable Development, where she helped federal officials, Fortune 500 CEOs, and national advocacy leaders write policy recommendations bound for the president's desk. She has written extensively on current events for Chicago Public Radio, Marketplace, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the Honolulu Star Bulletin, and more. During the 1980s she worked at Harvard University Press and Harvard Medical School as an editor. She has also written art criticism for a number of publications around the country. She lives with her husband in Rochester, N.Y.

From Publishers Weekly:

"I can't really hope for much for a country that is as wackily religious as ours," writes Yale English professor Harold Bloom in his somewhat pessimistic contribution to A Perfect World: Words and Paintings from Over 50 of America's Most Powerful People, edited by journalist Debra Trione. Others featured in this small, colorfully illustrated volume include Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, General Norman Schwarzkopf and chemistry Nobel laureate Dudley Herschbach. A wide range of political perspectives are represented, as well as a wide range of artistic skills: stick figures, landscapes of varying legibility and an abstract painting of interlocking arrows representing "flows of trade, capital, people, ideas and technology throughout the globe" are among the offerings.
