"Think of it as non-fiction beach reading for our impeachment winter"

With Beast White House correspondent Asawin Suebsaeng, Markay now delivers a breezy look at Trumpworld and our nation’s capital. Their book is constructed out of fresh reporting, prior columns and gossip, lots of it. It is filled with tales of greed, envy and near violence, together with schemes, outbursts and profanity. Think of it as non-fiction beach reading for our impeachment winter. Few are spared. Donald Trump’s insecurities and temper, Steve Bannon’s foul mouth and Jared Kushner’s habit of knowing less than he thinks he does – all are on display. Sinking in the Swamp contains at least a week’s worth of material for The Daily Show.
