A Senator's Eye

Finalist, Excellence in Publishing, 2019 Maine Literary Award


Sen. Angus S. King Jr.—whether hosting a bipartisan barbecue as a US Senator, traveling the country in his RV, riding the back roads of Maine on his Harley, or waxing poetically about his civil war hero Joshua Chamberlain—prides himself on having an eye and an ear for both the historic and the gloriously familiar. In recent years, he has regularly captured images of his work and daily adventures and shared those pictures on social media to provide a wonderful and rare insider’s look at the workaday life of a senator, whether he is in D.C. or his home state. From the formality of the Capitol Rotunda to a glorious sunrise off the coast of Maine, A Senator’s Eye: Celebrating Maine, Washington and the Joys of Scraping the Windshield is a fascinating collection of these informal photos, including King’s personal insights and captions.
