Many books have been written on the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Few have been hailed as compelling as The Great Divide: Story of the 2016 US Presidential Race. Written in real time, it provides a play-by-play (or blow-by-blow) account of all the events that made headlines during the campaign. Kirkus Reviews called The Great Divide “lucid, well-paced and evocative. Not everyone will agree with Harrison’s political take, but his entertaining re-creation of the campaign makes for an absorbing read.”
Howard Harrison is an award-winning writer with more than 35 years of experience as a speechwriter, ghostwriter, and journalist. The Great Divide: Story of the 2016 US Presidential Race is his second bylined book title. His first, NOW They Make It Legal: Reflections of an Aging Baby Boomer, was named a 2016 Reviewer’s Choice by the Midwest Book Review.
Two days before the second presidential debate, a video surfaced of Donald Trump with the host of the TV show Access Hollywood arriving on the set of the soap opera Days of our Lives. It was from 2005. Access Hollywood was doing a segment on Trump, who was taping a cameo on the long-running daytime serial.
