Michael Wolff Returns June 4th!

The secret is out! The highly confidential Summer 2019 drop-in is finally revealed as SIEGE: Trump Under Fire, Michael Wolff’s explosive follow-up to FIRE AND FURY! More information in the official release memo below:


NEW YORK, May 15, 2019–Henry Holt will publish Michael Wolff’s new book SIEGE: Trump Under Fire on June 4, it was announced today. Wolff is the author of the number-one international bestseller FIRE AND FURY: Inside the Trump White House, widely considered the first book to reveal the inner workings of the most controversial presidency in American history. Stephen Rubin, Holt’s Chairman, bought the book from Andrew Wylie of The Wylie Agency. John Sterling, the editor of FIRE AND FURY, will edit the new book. The book is embargoed until publication.

With FIRE AND FURY, Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in SIEGE, he has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side. A stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump’s second year as president is getting underway, and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report, SIEGE reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic, and exposed.

Michael Wolff is the author of FIRE AND FURY, the number-one bestseller that for the first time told the inside story of the Trump White House. He has received numerous awards for his work, including two National Magazine Awards. The author of seven previous books, he has been a regular columnist for Vanity Fair, New York, The Hollywood Reporter, British GQ, and other magazines and newspapers. He lives in Manhattan and has four children.

Red Hot Drop-In Alert: FIRE AND FURY

This week Henry Holt announced it will publish the first inside account of the Trump presidency: FIRE AND FURY: Inside the Trump White House by bestselling author, columnist and media critic Michael Wolff on January 9, 2018.

Given extraordinary access to Donald Trump’s administration, Wolff offers a shocking fly-on-the-wall view of the people and inner workings of the West Wing. Based on more than 200 interviews with the president, most members of his senior staff, and many of the people they in turn spoke to, Wolff shows how Trump and his team careened from one crisis to the next during the administration’s first nine months. Many of Trump’s closest advisers were politically inexperienced and untested; from the start, bitter rivalries if not open warfare paralyzed the new presidency. And at the center of the White House was Trump himself: impulsive, fiery, and wholly new to the world of politics, he consistently broke the mold of presidential character, purpose, and precedent.

The book also provides searing, intimate portraits of the key players, including: Steve Bannon, the president’s bellicose former chief strategist; Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump; Reince Priebus, the outflanked former chief of staff; Sean Spicer, the much-maligned former press secretary; and key operatives Kellyanne Conway, Gary Cohn, Stephen Miller, Dina Powell, and Hope Hicks.

“The United States is in the midst of the most intense political storm since Watergate, and my aim in reporting and writing this book was to see life inside White House through the eyes of the people who are closest to the center of this hurricane,” said Wolff. “Perhaps not since the Tudors has palace intrigue been so corrosive and lethal, nor the king so volatile and so in need of instant gratification.”
