Given the politically charged environment, there was a surprising dearth of political offerings at BookExpo — and most of such books coming out this fall are anti-President Trump works.
One quickie book is due in November, from Alec Baldwin, who impersonated Trump on “Saturday Night Live” and is teaming with Spy co-founder Kurt Andersen to write “You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump (A So-Called Parody),” from Penguin Press.
Maureen Dowd’s new tome, “The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics,” is slated for mid-September release from Twelve, an imprint of Hachette Books.
Emily Jane Fox, who writes for Vanity Fair, has landed a deal with HarperCollins for a book on the Trump kids, with the working title “Born Trump,” sources said.
Whispers are that the book will be published next year. Executive Editor Jonathan Jao is said to be editing the book.
Few, if any, pro-Trump books were spotted at BookExpo, the marketplace where publishers try to pitch their fall and winter books to independent bookstores.
