The Year of Voting Dangerously

The Year of Voting Dangerously

The Derangement of American Politics

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
NOW WITH A NEW PREFACE AND POST-ELECTION COLUMNS

From the preeminent political columnist of our time, Maureen Dowd’s most incendiary takes and takedowns on the bizarre and fascinating election of 2016.

Trapped between two candidates with the highest recorded unfavorables, Americans were plunged into The Year of Voting Dangerously. In the perilous and shocking 2016 campaign, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd traced the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever. Dowd has covered Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the ’90s. She was with the real estate mogul when he shyly approached his first Presidential rope line in 1999, and she won a Pulitzer prize that same year for her penetrating columns on the Clinton impeachment follies. Like her bestsellers, Bushworld and Are Men Necessary?, THE YEAR OF VOTING DANGEROUSLY features Dowd’s trademark cocktail of wry humor and acerbic analysis in dispatches from the political madhouse. If America is on the escalator to hell, then THE YEAR OF VOTING DANGEROUSLY is the perfect guide for this surreal, insane ride.

Praise

"Dowd was born to write about this race. And she dissects its main characters with poison in her pen and poetic punch in her delivery...Dowd surely captures the theater of our politics better than anyone else: The Clintons. The Trumps. The Obamas. The Bushes. She has been in their heads as long as they have been on our minds. She's the establishment's resident shrink."—New York Times Book Review
"Maureen Dowd bakes a cookie with razor blades for the trick-or-treating nominees in The Year of Voting Dangerously."—Sloane Crosley, bestselling author of I Was Told There'd Be Cake
"[The] ultimate political satire, a human comedy of errors full of sound and fury, signifying everything. Dowd, the red-haired siren of snark, has...held her place. Presidents come and go, but journalists tend to stick around. It has to be said: The Dowd abides."—The Washington Post
