Joy-Ann Reid is the host of AM Joy –a twice-weekly political talk show that airs weekend mornings on MSNBC. She is also a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC and writes a weekly column for The Daily Beast. Reid is the author or editor of two previous books: Fracture, Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the Racial Divide, and We Are the Change We Seek: the Speeches of Barack Obama. In The Man Who Sold America (William Morrow), through interviews with American and international thought leaders and in-depth analysis, Reid places the Trump era within the context of modern history, examining the profound social changes that led us to this point. Providing new context and depth to our understanding, The Man Who Sold America reveals the causes and consequences of the Trump presidency and contends with the future. Michael Tomasky, contributing opinion writer to The New York Times and author of If We Can Keep It: How the Republic Collapsed and How It Might Be Saved, wrote, “Passionate, smart, and breathtakingly original, The Man Who Sold America will explain Trump to readers for years to come.”
