Reviews

`Kakutani has written the first great book of the Trump administration. The Death of Truth is a fiery polemic against the president and should go down as essential reading. In nine exquisitely crafted broadsides, the Pulitzer winner calls upon her vast knowledge of literature, philosophy and politics to serve up a damning state of the union' Rolling Stone

`The Death of Truth is destined to become the defining treatise of our age. Not only does it brilliantly and incisively diagnose the roots of our decaying social and political order; it also shows why we must rescue the truth before it is buried under a regime of lies. Everyone should read this book' David Grann

`This book is essential reading today' Walter Isaacson

`Kakutani's slender, fiery new book could have been written only by someone who reads more, and retains more, than most mere mortals' TIME

`Without the truth we will be neither prosperous nor virtuous nor free. This book begins the self-defence of American culture' Timothy Snyder

`This is the book I would have written - but only if I had had a brilliant grasp of literature, politics, and history, and the ability to weave them together in a uniquely original way. The Death of Truth goes indelibly to the dark, dark heart of what is ailing our democracy as no recent book has done' Graydon Carter

`Kakutani's The Death of Truth is politically urgent and intellectually dazzling. She deftly goes behind the daily headlines to reveal the larger forces threatening democracy at home in America, and elsewhere around the globe. The result is a brilliant and fascinating call-to-arms that anyone who cares about democracy ought to read immediately' Jane Mayer

`An elegant polemic against Trump, tyranny and lies' The Times

An intellectually dazzling read' Entertainment Weekly

`Riveting, righteous and relevant' Irish Times
