Dispatches from the 2016 Circus

by Taibbi, Matt

Taibbi's book will be among the first works that attempts to make sense of the campaign season and put the emergence of Donald Trump into a wider perspective about the fissures in American society and democracy.

In INSANE CLOWN PRESIDENT, one of America's most essential political journalists delivers a collection of dispatches on the 2016 election--from the ominous clownshow of the 2015 run-up to the primaries to the darkly comic twists and turns of the general campaign to the astonishing, world-shaking finish, The collection of 24 previously published pieces will be framed by two original, deeply insightful essays about the election and our democracy's uncertain future.

Matt Taibbi is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Divide, Griftopia, and The Great Derangement, and a contributing editor for Rolling Stone. In addition, he was the winner of the 2007 National Magazine Award for Columns and Commentary. He is also at work on his next full-length work of nonfiction which we already have under contract, I Can’t Breathe.
