Trevor Noah, "Born a Crime" (with Cory Booker)

Trevor Noah, "Born a Crime" (with Cory Booker)

http://www.politics-prose.com/book/9780399588174 Host of The Daily Show, Noah gained an international audience at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his furiously energetic and hilarious one-man show, The Racist. Now he looks back over the experiences that have fueled his career, charting his coming-of-age in South Africa. Born to a white, Swiss-German father and a black Xhosa mother, Noah was, under apartheid, illegal; after apartheid, as the country came to grips with its past and the chaos of its future, he developed a keen eye for the absurdities of politics, race, and nationalism. If survival is the theme of his book, his mother, the consummate survivor, is its heart, and Noah’s depictions of her fierce Christianity, her savvy hustling, and her determination are as moving as they are funny. Noah is in conversation with New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

The strange haunting of Jamie Morton begins when he's a boy and his town's new minister pays a call. The shadow cast that day will stretch long, for both Jamie and his family.

Aslan, author of No God But God, profiles Christ as a man of his time; leaving out the centuries' worth of myths, legends, and beliefs, he draws from historical sources to introduce a passionate, even fanatical, ideologue and revolutionary. http://bit.ly/1hquCTX Founded by Carla Cohen and Barbara Meade in 1984, Politics & Prose Bookstore is Washington, D.C.'s premier independent bookstore and cultural hub, a gathering place for people interested in reading and discussing books.

Chris Hedges, "America: The Farewell Tour"

Chris Hedges, "America: The Farewell Tour"

Chris Hedges, "America: The Farewell Tour", at Politics and Prose on 8/22/18. A longtime foreign correspondent, Hedges has reported from more than fifty countries. His latest book is a profound exploration of one of the most troubled: today’s United States. Hedges, author of American Fascists and War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning, cites the opioid crisis, the increases in gambling and magical thinking, and the explosion of xenophobia as symptoms of a society that has lost hope. He traces this disillusionment to the twin ills of a de facto corporate coup d’état and a failed democracy. The anger and frustration these have spawned helped bring Trump to power and Hedges issues a passionate call to action to reverse them. https://www.politics-prose.com/book/9781501152672 Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist who was a foreign correspondent for fifteen years for The New York Times where he served as the Middle East Bureau Chief and Balkan Bureau Chief for the paper.

Gary Wills, "What the Qur'an Meant: And Why It Matters"

Gary Wills, "What the Qur'an Meant: And Why It Matters"

As with many sacred books, the Qur’an has been subject to centuries of interpretations and assertions. To discover what it really says, the first step is to read the text carefully. Wills has done just that, and his meticulous analysis clears away the accumulated distortions that have led to misunderstandings on questions ranging from the Islamic stand on religious war to the requirements that women wear veils. By comparing the Qur’an to the Bible, Wills, who studied for the priesthood before becoming a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and writer on politics and religion, finds many parallels between the texts, including rich passages that offer multiple meanings. His scholarly, open-minded approach invites people of all faiths to engage with this rich and inspiring text. http://www.politics-prose.com/book/9781101981023 Founded by Carla Cohen and Barbara Meade in 1984, Politics and Prose Bookstore is Washington, D.C.'s premier independent bookstore and cultural hub, a gathering place for people interested in reading and discussing books.

David Cay Johnston, "It's Even Worse Than You Think"

David Cay Johnston, "It's Even Worse Than You Think"

David Cay Johnston discusses his book, "It's Even Worse Than You Think" at Politics and Prose on 1/24/18. Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter, has been covering Trump since 1988. In June 2015, he was the first national journalist to write about a possible Trump presidency and in his 2016 bestselling The Making of Donald Trump he gave a comprehensive account of Trump’s business practices, associates, and family background. Now Johnston follows up that profile with a detailed analysis of the Trump administration’s first one hundred days. He shows how Trump’s policies are affecting ordinary people’s jobs, finances, and security, explains the federal agencies charged with carrying out Trump’s executive actions, and illuminates places where the system can hide what’s really going on. http://www.politics-prose.com/book/9781501174162 Founded by Carla Cohen and Barbara Meade in 1984, Politics and Prose Bookstore is Washington, D.C.'s premier independent bookstore and cultural hub, a gathering place for people interested in reading and discussing books.
