Description

In 1996, New Yorker writer Mark Singer was conscripted by his editor to profile Donald Trump, at a time when the Republican frontrunner was just a Manhattan-centric megalomaniac and failing casino operator mired in his second divorce. After spending months with Trump in his office towers, penthouse apartment, and private plane, Singer found himself fascinated with this man "who had aspired to and achieved the ultimate luxury, an existence unmolested by the rumbling of a soul."

Since then, Trump has become a serious candidate in the US presidential race, an unlikely tribune of populist rage that has resulted in a mass political movement only loosely tethered to reality. Yet Singer's droll and precise profile has lodged inside Trump's head as a continuing irritant - and it's not hard to see why. In TRUMP AND ME, Singer revisits his former subject and outlines his evolution from swaggering buffoon to Republican nominee in one of the most bizarre and alarming elections in American history.

Review quote

A lot of laughs ... A viciously entertaining demolition of the branding savant with the peach pompadour who was to become the Republican party nominee for the most powerful elected office in the world -- Hari Kunzru * Guardian * Scathing, hilarious, cannily prescient ... Singer is excellent on both the absurdity and menace of his subject -- Toby Lichtig * Times Literary Supplement * A classic of the genre * Vice * Hilariously scathing * Observer * Short but sweet ... An amusing but also terrifying portrayal of a narcissist, with only a fleeting grasp of reality, who could soon be the leader of the free world -- Rachel Sylvester * The Times * Trump & Me offers clearer insight into the mind of the presumptive Republican nominee than any of the detailed biographies written over the years ... Very funny ... Singer is excellent at describing the disturbing strangeness of Trump's existence, and the precariousness of his assets -- Stephen Robinson * Telegraph * The best, most insightful, and funniest portrait of Trump -- David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker The measure of Donald Trump. Never equalled -- Lawrence Wright Brilliant . . . amazingly relevant now -- James Fallows
