Admission: 18 € / 12 €

It’s the exposé that’s shaken Donald Trump's presidency: Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury is a striking moral portrait of American politics under Trump. At its centre, a president who’s treated like a small child by his staff and who’s surrounded by incompetence, intrigue and betrayal. Bestselling author Wolff describes the chaos that prevailed in the White House over the first few months, revealing how close the Russian connection has gotten to Trump and how FBI Director Comey was kicked out. And he provides astonishing details about the president’s private life. Wolff conducted over two hundred interviews with the president's closest associates, including former Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon. Never before has a journalist succeeded in tracing events in the White House so closely. The result is a unique portrait of a president who never expected to win the election. Michael Wolff's report from the White House under Trump is a bestseller in the U.S.: a topical political book that reads like one of Shakespeare’s royal dramas.

Michael Wolff, born in 1953, is an American journalist and author. He writes for Vanity Fair, The Hollywood Reporter, The Guardian, USA Today and the British edition of GQ. He has published six books, including The Man Who Owns the News (2008), a biography of Rupert Murdoch.
