In this book about the overlapping history of television and politics, The Times’s chief TV critic writes what our reviewer called a “dramedy,” exploring how Donald J. Trump’s television career made his rise to the presidency almost inevitable. Poniewozik “uses his ample comedic gifts in the service of describing a slow-boil tragedy,” our reviewer, Gary Shteyngart, wrote, adding, “This book is really about the role played by all of us, the faithful citizens of TV Nation.”

King’s most recent book, about brilliant children with extrasensory talents who are held captive in a Maine compound, reminded our critic Dwight Garner why he loves the prolific writer: “The music is always good. He swings low to the ground. He gets closer to the realities and attitudes of working-class life in America than any living writer I can think of,” Garner explained. “This novel is less a motorcycle than a double-decker bus, but it does handle gracefully.”
