In America

Caitríona Perry

In her first book, she goes beyond the news reports and delves into the American heartland where she witnessed his rise at first hand, while others were blindsided by his victory. Bringing to the table the voices of those who voted for President Trump, Hillary Clinton's so-called 'basket of deplorables', the ones whose opinions didn't coalesce with acceptable mainstream discourse, Caitríona Perry reveals just what is really happening in America right now. This is the story of the American people who were angry and disillusioned by traditional politics. It is the story of the workers of the industrial heartland, of the women of America, of immigrant communities, of the people who viewed a wealthy businessman from the city of New York as 'one of us'. This is the story of the people who shook the world. More at Gill Books: ​https://www.gillbooks.ie/current-affairs/current-affairs/in-america
