'Fire And Fury' Author Michael Wolff Defends Controversial President Donald Trump Book (Full) - CNBC
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House
Readers are looking to other sources for more reliable information, Altshuler said. Unless the author comes forward with reliable sources or the documents to support his research, this lack of validity may hurt sales. Wolff has been slow to respond to questions of plausibility, but is now starting to make public appearances. So far, McLean said that has generally been weaker in the category, however, nonfiction sales are still strong. But, in general, the climate for political books is still very strong. The climate for adult nonfiction overall is still very strong.
Here we go again: another juicy book about the White House, early leaks, a round of flat denials, shortly to be followed—in all likelihood—by a set of fevered interpretations and recriminations. The book is Siege , by Michael Wolff. But the bigger problem is the format. What more can we learn about a president who is already so heavily exposed? Once upon a time, the tell-all would actually tell something new about a president. The former George W. Articles and books like these offered both new detail and new interpretation that could help the public understand leaders and perhaps change public opinion about them.
M ichael Wolff is back and not with a whimper. The latest installment of his Trump chronicles picks up where Fire and Fury ended. Once again, it leaves the president bruised and readers shaking their heads. None escape unscathed. Steve Bannon supplies a running commentary for which Wolff calls him his Virgil. Much weirder.
