NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERNOW WITH A NEW PREFACE AND POST-ELECTION COLUMNS From the preeminent political columnist of our time, Maureen Dowd's most incendiary takes and takedowns on the bizarre and fascinating election of 2016. Trapped between two candidates with the highest recorded unfavorables, Americans were plunged into The Year of Voting Dangerously. In the perilous and shocking 2016 campaign, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd traced the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever. Dowd has covered Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the '90s. She was with the real estate mogul when he shyly approached his first Presidential rope line in 1999, and she won a Pulitzer prize that same year for her penetrating columns on the Clinton impeachment follies. Like her bestsellers, Bushworld and Are Men Necessary?, THE YEAR OF VOTING DANGEROUSLY features Dowd's trademark cocktail of wry humor and acerbic analysis in dispatches from the political madhouse. If America is on the escalator to hell, then THE YEAR OF VOTING DANGEROUSLY is the perfect guide for this surreal, insane ride.
