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. Download and start listening now!
