Thomas Mallon - Landfall

Upcoming Event
Sunday, February 24, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

From Dewey Defeats Truman to Watergate and Finale, Mallon has made compelling and deeply insightful fiction out of some of the major political headlines of recent decades. In his new novel he recreates George W. Bush’s second term, a period in which the Chief Executive had hoped to secure his place in history as one of the great leaders, but instead struggled to defend his policies in Iraq and his managing of Hurricane Katrina. As Mallon’s Bush interacts with aides, the media, and a colorful cast of figures including Barbara Bush, Ann Richards, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, Christopher Hitchens, and more, Mallon skillfully evokes the period and reveals the forty-third president as an intriguing, multi-faceted character.
