Email a Friend

When Tony Schwartz ghostwrote Donald Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal”,” he had no idea that his narrative would one day help propel Trump to a Presidential candidacy. In this episode, Schwartz tells The New Yorkers Jane Mayer about his deep regret, and fear at the prospect of Trump becoming President. Plus, the satirical news columnist Andy Borowitz discusses the Republican National Convention, the poet Max Ritvo explains how poetry is helping him face terminal cancer, and a Chinese reporter explains why Trump might make democracy a harder sell in China.
