Congress is the most exhilarating, exciting and juicy story in town. The backstory about how deals get done — or don’t get done — is filled with intrigue, twists, turns and personality clashes. After more than seven years of talking about writing a book about Capitol Hill, we decided this is our time to do it. We’ll chart the first two years of Trump’s presidency, through the lens and prism of lawmakers and aides on Capitol Hill. This is a book about people and personalities, political chess and the battle for power in Congress. It’s a snapshot of official Washington in the era of Donald Trump.
IN MANY WAYS, this is a book we’ve been writing in our head since 2010. Congress is an institution we’ve spent a lot of time observing, studying and thinking about. We hope you come along for the ride.
CROWN, which published our friends Jon Allen and Amie Parnes’ books about Hillary Clinton, will publish our work. We anticipate it will be released in March of 2019 — just months after the midterm elections. DAVID LARABELL and RACHEL ADLER of CAA represented us.
