Waterstones Says

The outspoken author of the bestselling Trump trilogy turns his attention to the dysfunctional and dangerous Murdoch empire in this scathing analysis of Fox News and familial wars of succession.

Meet the Murdochs and the disastrously dysfunctional family of Fox News. Until recently, they formed the most powerful media and political force in America. Now their empire is cracking up and crashing down.

In his irresistible trilogy on the chaotic Trump presidency - Fire and Fury, Siege, and Landslide - the journalist Michael Wolff led readers deep into the twisted corridors of the White House. Drawing on years of unprecedented access to the Murdoch family and key players, he plunges us behind the scenes of another empire of influence, and the result is astonishing and unforgettable.

Here is Rupert Murdoch, the ninety-two-year-old billionaire - concerned about his legacy, but more concerned about profits. Here are his contentious children, jockeying to take over when the old man is gone. Here is star anchor Tucker Carlson considering a run for the presidency while his bosses have other plans for him. Sean Hannity, the richest man in television, has his own plans: to put Trump back in office. While presenter Laura Ingraham is just trying to survive in a man's world.

As the fallout from the 2020 election and the Dominion lawsuit pummels the reputation of the network, the battling Murdoch heirs position themselves for the final act in this riveting drama.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A Wolff book never fails to be delicious, as well as sweepingly insightful, on the turmoil behind various thrones but he has a Murdochian instinct: when in doubt, go for the jugular. - John Gapper, The Financial Times

An entertaining read. Wolff is interested in power and personalities, and in The Fall he offers countless lacerating portraits. - Justin Peters, The Washington Post

Amusingly vicious and very well-timed... In Wolff's telling, Murdoch is a sort of hapless Frankenstein, abominating the monster he set loose on the world but unsure how to fight him. - Michelle Goldberg, The New York Times

Wolff, author of a spate of books skewering the dysfunctional Trump presidency, returns to his investigation of the Murdochs with a fast-paced, gossip-filled recounting of family drama rivalling Succession in intrigue and bitter strife and the travails and scandals that have roiled Fox News. . . . Wolff is merciless. - Kirkus Reviews

Gripping - The New European

If it's true that Succession is based on the Murdoch family civil war, this astonishing exposé of life in King Rupert's court proves that truth remains stranger than fiction - Daily Telegraph, 50 Best Books of 2023
