, (PressExposure) July 09, 2008 -- Desert Road Publishing is pleased to announce the release of the political comedy "The Yale Diaries" by David Miguel Estrada. The book will be available to purchase July 4, 2008 at [http://www.desertroadpublishing.com]. For more information visit http://www.davidmiguelestrada.com.
"The Yale Diaries" is a political comedy about the unlikely friendship between George W. Bush and John Kerry at Yale University in 1966. Kerry and Bush have taken an immediate disliking to one another. Little do they know they share an inextricable bond that makes all their differences trivial. That bond is the Brotherhood of Death, the Skull & Bones Society. When Margaret Lerner, a beautiful Yale undergrad, dies suspiciously, George and John become close friends while hiding the truth behind her murder. Cameos are made by Howard Dean, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Rodham when the only party they subscribed to was the kind that supplied large amounts of alcohol.
Show Business Weekly calls him "...a maverick writer-actor-director." The Austin-American Statesman writes, "...engaging throughout." Dennis Safren, Literary Director of First Stage and author of the critically-acclaimed play "Straights!" hails Estrada as "...one of the most exciting young voices in theatre."
The playwright, who hails from Texas, has had seven productions of his plays mounted in New York and Los Angeles including "You Ain't No Johnny Cash" and "God, Man, & Stan." Both plays are to be published later this year by Desert Road Publishing.
Estrada, the son of an Army officer and a stage actress, is the youngest of a theatrical family that includes two other playwrights who have also had their plays produced in New York. Joey Reynolds of the nationally-syndicated WOR Radio warns, "Don't mess with that family!"
In a recent radio interview, Estrada elaborated on the political aspect of the play, stating, "A lot of people are turned off by the word 'political.' I like to think of it as a play about two young men who happen to one day become politicians. At this point in their lives they are just dreamers. There is no telling what they are going to do in the future. That's the beauty of the play."
