Another winner by Masha Gessen
Masha Gessen really nailed it. I’m not much for politics and haven’t read too many Trump-focused books because I found that a frustrating and unappealing topic. I picked this up mainly due to author recognition. But it was great. Ms. Gessen’s explanations of things that have been happening since Trump was elected were insightful and inciteful. My only quibble is that there weren’t enough concrete ideas for action at the end, more of a philosophical wish for how things should change. Because of that, it felt like it ended abruptly. But I would recommend this wholeheartedly.
