Product description


Now that the Donald Trump freak show has replaced all regularly scheduled programming, staggering us daily, as one of its longtime chroniclers I'm grateful for this brilliant, lucid, and essential book to help make sense of this American nightmare.--Kurt Andersen, author of Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire

With wit, insight, and clarity, James Poniewozik puts Trump at the center of a series of changes that swept through American popular culture and political systems. Poniewozik's essential book shows how these evolutions incubated Trumpism, even as Trump's rise exposed the limits and vulnerabilities of the media, which too often found itself floundering in the face of his shameless manipulations.--Maureen Ryan, chief TV critic for Variety

This is both a fascinating look at the ways television has changed and shaped the U.S., and a compelling lens through which to look at how we got to November 8, 2016.--Booklist

The smartest, most original, most unexpectedly definitive account of the rise of Trump and Trumpism we've had so far. It's also the best book yet written about the bride-of-Frankenstein mating of American politics and American pop culture, a wedding practically nobody saw coming until Trump provided the shotgun... [An] uncommonly rich and stimulating book.--Tom Carson

About the Author

James Poniewozik has been the chief television critic of the New York Times since 2015. He was previously the television and media critic for Time magazine and media columnist for Salon. He lives in Brooklyn.
