Michael Wolff releasing sequel to Fire and Fury | US news | The GuardianMichael Wolff might be the most unreliable historian America has ever encountered, but at least he admits it. Dealing with sources in the Trump White House has continued to offer its own set of unique issues. Wolff is the perfect biographer for the Trump era. The book infuriated Trump and many of the people described in its pages, which of course ended the magic couch ride. The second book is a compendium of gossip he continued to collect post-exile, presumably from less prestigious couches.
Siege review: Michael Wolff's Trump tale is Fire and Fury II – fire harder
The publishers scrambled to get enough copies into print, selling 1. Wolff had impressive sources too. Undeterred, Bannon has continued to exert influence internationally, seeing himself as a leader of a populist movement that will continue to flourish after Trump himself has been dispatched. This time Wolff seems to have surrendered interpretative duties to Bannon almost entirely. After every Trump calamity, he respectfully tells us what Bannon thinks about it. Which makes Wolff himself our Dante. We know now what he is like.
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.

According to Michael Wolff , when he approached Donald Trump about writing a book on his presidency , Trump agreed to give him access to the White House because he liked an article Wolff wrote about him in June for The Hollywood Reporter.
Fire and Fury, which has reportedly sold more than 4 million copies to date, was simply too down-and-dirty, too explosive, too scandalous for any sources to be willing to talk to Wolff again. Apparently not. As Axios recently reported , Wolff interviewed some people for the Fire and Fury sequel— out June 4 from Henry Holt—more than two-thirds of whom were repeat customers. Former senior officials, Trump pals, etc. And once again, the dirt is abundant.
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.
