Product description


"Powerful... A striking, at times even hilarious book, but by the end it leaves the reader with a profound sense of loss... Shade drives home Obama's humanity and dignity and Trump's petty mind and epic failings like few other documents."--Rolling Stone

"As President Obama's photographer, Pete Souza was one of the very finest official White House snappers. In his provocative Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents, he contrasts pictures of the 44th incumbent with vignettes from the administration of the 45th to caustic effect."--Ben Schott, The Guardian

"Pete Souza became an Instagram celebrity by documenting the White House. Then he became an even bigger one by criticizing it."--New York Times

"A cool refuge from the heat of a very orange sun... [Shade] illustrate[s] the extent to which Obama's expansive ideals have been edged out by Trump's politics of meanness and resentment."--Shondaland

"In Shade... [Pete Souza] continues to juxtapose Mr. Obama and Mr. Trump via images, headlines, and tweets... he's not throwing shade, he insists--he's just telling the truth."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Playful yet biting... commentary on Trump's current antics... to remind us what a president can be."--BookRiot

"These juxtapositions of permanence and transience are ultimately what make Shade a compelling read; powerful, memorable portraits of an eight-year presidency stand beside headlines and tweets that surface on Twitter feeds for a few days at most and then are brushed aside amid new ones. The book is not just a tale of two presidents, but a tale of two political and media landscapes."--NPR

Book Description

From Pete Souza, the Number 1 New York Times bestselling author of Obama: An Intimate Portrait, comes a powerful tribute to a bygone era of integrity in politics.
