Penguin Press has published books by Henry Kissinger, Leon Panetta and Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. Now comes Alec Baldwin, with a lighter spin on politics.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Baldwin and Kurt Anderson have co-written a book for Penguin called “You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump.”
According to Penguin, the book will feature Trump’s “refreshingly compulsive un-PC candor” applied to what he really thinks about his family, other world leaders, and the major events of his first year, many of which, of course, have not happened yet after only 40 days in office.”
EW says the book comes out Nov. 7.
“Anderson was one of the co-founders of Spy magazine, the publication that first called Trump a ‘short-fingered vulgarian’ — an insult that has carried on to the present day. As a result, Anderson is something of an expert when it comes to mocking Trump,” EW said.
Anderson is quoted as saying: “I didn’t think this former hobby of mine would return with this ferocity. I think we’ll be channeling and amplifying the real Trump … Writing for a five- or 10-minute sketch is different than writing a book, which has to be a narrative.”
