Siege

Siege

Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell bestseller Fire and Fury, once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege.

Just one year into Donald Trump’s term as president, Michael Wolff told the electrifying story of a White House consumed by controversy, chaos and intense rivalries. Fire and Fury, an instant sensation, defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege, Wolff has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.


At the outset of Trump’s second year as president, his situation is profoundly different. No longer tempered by experienced advisers, he is more impulsive and volatile than ever. But the wheels of justice are inexorably turning: Robert Mueller’s ‘witch hunt’ haunts Trump every day, and other federal prosecutors are taking a deep dive into his business affairs. Many in the political establishment – even some members of his own administration – have turned on him and are dedicated to bringing him down. The Democrats see victory at the polls, and perhaps impeachment, in front of them. Trump, meanwhile, is certain he is invincible, making him all the more exposed and vulnerable. Week by week, as Trump becomes increasingly erratic, the question that lies at the heart of his tenure becomes ever more urgent: Will this most abnormal of presidencies at last reach the breaking point and implode?


Both a riveting narrative and a brilliant front-lines report, Siege provides an alarming and indelible portrait of a president like no other. Surrounded by enemies and blind to his peril, Trump is a raging, self-destructive inferno ? and the most divisive leader in American history.

Reviews

Hilarious and frightening, and often reads like a Hollywood gossip column
Financial Times
This book confirms that Trump should never have been allowed to hold power in the first place
Max Liu, The i
A mordant, readable tell-all designed to show how Trump, simply by being Trump, has made himself the perfect wrecking ball, blasting holes through an array of institutions
Jennifer Szalai, New York Times
Michael Wolff has unearthed a mass of damning material about Donald Trump . . . Siege is filled with delicious gossip
Sarah Baxter, Sunday Times
Rich in psychological insights
Peter Conrad, Observer
Utterly gripping
GQ
Michael Wolff is back and not with a whimper. The latest instalment of his Trump chronicles picks up where Fire and Fury ended
Lloyd Green, Guardian
Michael Wolff's new book, Siege, is a deliciously catty look inside the White House, full of wicked anecdotes and gossipy gold. It's like sitting in a hairdresser's listening to a fabulously indiscreet conversation beside you. It's The Kardashians: White House edition
Harriet Alexander, Telegraph
Bannon's frequently shrewd observations make it clear why Wolff finds him irresistible. The author is mostly interested in Trump's psychology. He is adept at documenting the president's lunacy, and Bannon is frequently an able fellow shrink
Washington Post
Readers are rewarded with more eye-popping examples with more eye-popping examples of [Trump's] crudeness and vulgarity
Daily Mail
Once again, the dirt is abundant. Donald Trump insults everyone in his orbit, repeatedly, viciously, and - always privately - they return the favor ... Siege is overflowing with such titillating material, which is sure to make it another tour de force for the Trump resistance
