Trapped between two candidates with the highest recorded unfavorables, Americans have been plunged into the most bizarre, disruptive, and divisive Presidential race in modern history. In this perilous and shocking campaign season, The New York Times columnist traces the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever in The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics.

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 incendiary takes and takedowns of the 2016 election, with her trademark wry humor and acerbic analysis. In conversation with Leon Wieseltier, a contributing editor at The Atlantic and the author of Kaddish. From 1983 to 2014, he was the literary editor of The New RepublicBook signing to follow.
