Description

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 U.S. Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy; and in 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, yet deeply personal and unflinchingly honest, 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.

    I have never written a book review. I had never watched a documentary before I watched Roger and me. Since that time I have watched all your movies, read everything I could about you, watched your appearances on television with often rude confrontational hosts. My admiration for what you do and more importantly how it has made a difference in my life; made me want to express my gratitude. Most of all I have admired your passion and courage and worried about your safety.... I am a 53 year old single mother of two and I am a Registered nurse. Each and every one of us can make a difference. In my own very small way; I will not be silenced if I encounter injustice, inequality, discrimination, or apathy. Thank you Mr. Moore! Respectfully, Maribeth Ma

    Other than technical stuff I have had to read, i haven't read much over the last 35 years. I opened the book at that famous bookshop Costco, and haven't been able to put the book down other than for mandatory sleep. Delightful reading and of course writing
