Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

OK, so who else is just itching to get hold of a copy of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House (affiliate link)? This new book by Michael Wolff has already been described as “explosive”, “incendiary” and other ordnance-related epithets.

Do you think they chose a particularly unflattering photo of Donny on purpose?

Has anyone got a copy already? I watched a BBC News interview with someone queued up to buy one of the first copies on sale; he said he expected it to be “a dumpster fire” and expose the chaos of The White House.

I’d love to read comments from people who’ve already dived into it. 🙂

What’s on your reading list?

Geekdom can be about anything, books included. I dislike not having anything new to read at home, but there’s no danger of that in the near future! I’ve got a stack of books that I mean to get around to reading in the new year (and in what’s left of this one, to be honest).

I’ve got “The Man in the High Castle” by Philip K Dick and “Why I Write” by George Orwell to finish off that I’m partway through. Unread and in no particular order I’ve got the following books waiting for yours truly to read:

  • The Owl Service by Alan Garner
  • A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
  • The Ring + The Opposite of Death by Jose Saviano
  • Best of Rebelle Society Vol 1: Celebrating the Art of Being Alive, curated by Andrea Balt & Tanya Lee Markul
  • Balderdash & Piffle by Alex Games
  • Wizardry and Wild Romance by Michael Moorecock
  • A Brief History of Fables: From Aesop to Flash Fiction by Lee Rourke
  • Approaching Zero: Data Crime and the Computer Underworld by Bryan Clough & Paul Mungo
  • The Psychopath Test: A Journey through the Madness Industry by Jon Ronson
  • Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo
  • The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra
  • And last but not least without a trace of irony… Speed Reading for Dummies by Richard Sutz with Peter Weverka

All of these bar one were bought on a whim in the last few months, mostly from second-hand bookshops around London.  The Michael Moorecock book I’ve read before when I was in High School.  I’ve no idea where my first copy is now; I’m sure I leant it to someone and never got it back.

So, what’s in your reading pile?
