Michael Moore, Oscar-winning filmmaker, bestselling author, and the nation’s official provocateur laureate, is back, this time taking on an entirely new role, that of his own meta-Forrest Gump.

Smashing the autobiographical mold, Moore presents twenty-four far-ranging, irreverent, and stranger than fiction vignettes from his own early life. One moment he’s an eleven-year-old boy lost in the US Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy, and the next he’s inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Fast-forwarding to 2003, he stuns the world from the Oscar stage by uttering the words “We live in fictitious times…with a fictitious president” in place of the usual “I’d like to thank the Academy.” And none of that even comes close to the night the friendly priest at the seminary decides to show him how to perform his own exorcism.

Capturing the zeitgeist of the past fifty years, Here Comes Trouble takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, it’s the book he has been writing, and living, his entire life.

Quotes & Awards

  • Here Comes Trouble is by far Mr. Moore’s best book…his coming of age as a working-class malcontent is…something to behold…It persuades you to take Mr. Moore seriously, and it belongs on a shelf with memoirs by, and books about, nonconformists like Mother Jones, Abbie Hoffman, Phil Ochs, Rachel Carson, Harvey Pekar and even Thomas Paine.”

    New York Times

  • “In Here Comes Trouble, Moore ranges freely over his maverick life, dropping down to recount his strange encounters with presidents and other politicians, media figures, business moguls, and white supremacist racists. Informal, hilarious, and irreverent.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “An outstanding memoir…True to form, Moore doesn’t pull any punches, but he’s grown as a writer, with more discussion and fewer extended rants than in his previous books…With the book’s emotional highs and lows, and self-deprecating, empathetic style, Moore triumphs. Regardless of which side of the political fence readers are on, they’re sure to find this collection enlightening, engaging, and occasionally enraging.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “From the pleasures of night baseball to family arguments over long hair and Vietnam to early forays into politics, Moore turns in a readable, and often quite funny, American story…Moore considers himself a patriot…This spirited, most welcome book is more evidence of that affection.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Andrea | 2/16/2014

    " The first chapter of this book really hooked me and pulled me in. Moore is a talented writer and storyteller which makes the book worth reading but I was not as interested in his childhood stories as I was the ones where he is older. I would have loved to hear more about the present day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sandi | 2/2/2014

    " Growing up a GM brat, this book really drew me in. In writing about his years growing up about 15 miles from where I grew up, he reveals how his political and economic beliefs originated. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Patti | 1/26/2014

    " It was fascinating to read about the events and people who helped shape Michael Moore to become the rabble rouser he is today. I also enjoyed reading about the small town life he enjoyed as a boy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by John | 1/23/2014

    " Reading "Here Comes Trouble" makes me want to quit my job and become a lefty film maker...seriously. "
