Micro-Review #20: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

by Michael Wolff

Remember when this one came out? The Donald was halfway through his term and rattling sabers with North Korea’s “Little Kim” Jong-un. Wolff’s portrayal of intrigue and dysfunction within Trump’s inner circle was accepted as generally accurate but perhaps lurid with the details. Fly-on-the-wall snapshots of the Trump team in disarray—from Melania crying on election night to Trump angrily firing James Comey—are salacious but fun to read, though only in small doses. If you take on more than a chapter at a time, you might find there’s not enough soap in the world to wash yourself clean again. Reviewed on Nov. 5, 2020
