Imminent books on the subject include Katy Tur’s memoir, Unbelievable, which chronicles her time covering Trump’s presidential campaign or NBC news. Tur was assured by the programme’s head of news that it would be a brief assignment, lasting six weeks or so. In fact, it lasted 18 months and in that time Tur became a frequent target of Trump on Twitter and at his rallies. She also received death threats from his supporters.
The memoir is to be published by Dey Strett Books next year.
Random House is to publish a memoir by Khizr Khan, the Pakistani American Gold Star father which tells the story of his move from Pakistan to American, the loss o his son (a captain the US army) and the family’s role in a national debate about immigration, patriotism and religious diversity.
Other books will look at Trump’s populist appeal and the way he capitalised on voters’ economic and social anxiety. Journalist David Neiwart’s MilitiaLand USA: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump looks at how Trump’s campaign helped extreme right-wing arguments find a place in the mainstream.
Atlantic Books is to publish the BBC broadcaster Steve Richard’s book The Rise of the Outsiders: How the Anti-Establishment Is On The March, which will also look at what drove voters to exit the European Union.
