Author(s): Michael Wolff
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. With FIRE AND FURY, Michael Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in SIEGE, he has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side. A stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump's second year as president is getting underway and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report, SIEGE reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic and exposed.
From the writer of Fire and Fury, Wolff writes about the most controversial American presidency ever, which gives a behind-the-scenes look starting at Trump's second year. Unsurprisingly Trump is an unhinged, strange person but so are the Yes people who surround him. Wolff uses facts but also some conjecture to fill in the blanks for us.

“The Trump presidency began as reality TV, with a cast of loud-mouthed, dim-witted chancers embroiled in histrionic tiffs. Then, capitalising on Trump’s threats to Kim Jong-un, Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury prospectively upgraded it to a war movie. But the nuclear fulminations were only bluff, and Trump soon began to exchange endearments with the chubby North Korean despot, having been told that he might qualify for the Nobel peace prize. The world didn’t end after all, and the anticlimax has forced Wolff, in this new account of later developments, to think again about the Trump show’s genre. Siege reclassifies the hapless administration as a comic opera, calls the president a clown, and makes his rants and tantrums sound absurd not alarming.”
