Insider Baseball

A non fiction book by

A Vintage Shorts Selection

Almost three decades ago, iconic and incomparable American essayist Joan Didion's now-classic report from the Dukakis campaign trail exposed, in no uncertain terms, the complete sham that is the modern American presidential run.

Writing with bite and some humor too, Didion betrays "the process" - the way in which power is exchanged and the status quo is maintained. All insiders - politicians, journalists, spin doctors - participate in a political narrative that is "designed as it is to maintain the illusion of consensus by obscuring rather than addressing actual issues." The optics of presidential campaigns have grown ever more farcical and remote from the needs and issues most relevant to Americans' lives, and Didion's elegant, shrewd, and prescient commentary has never been more urgent than it is right now.

An ebook short.
