Here Comes Trouble: Stories From My Life

Author(s): Michael Moore

Current Affairs & Politics

"Here Comes Trouble" is Michael Moore's blistering anti-memoir, a hilarious book tracing the origins of his political rabble-rousing and his early forays into campaigning for change. Michael Moore has been called an iconoclast, a maverick, a vital dissenting voice and a one of the most un-American people alive. But what made him the man he is today? In his sensational and provocative 'anti-memoir', Moore reveals the family, friends and amazing events that have shaped him: from teachers and Senator Robert Kennedy to parents and the Vietnam War. "Here Comes Trouble" might just be the most hilarious, provoking, inspiring, poignant and important non-autobiography you ever read. "A comic genius." (Independent). "Moore is a wake-up call, a call to action, a kick in the mental backside." (Guardian). In addition to his work as a bestselling author, Michael Moore is the award-winning director of "Bowling for Columbine", "Fahrenheit 9/11", "Sicko and Capitalism: A Love Story". "He lives in Michigan".

Product Information

Hilarious Guardian A comic genius Independent Caustic, breakneck, tell-it-like-it-is ... He's a genuine populist; a twenty-first century pamphleteer Observer Moore has mastered the rare trick of being passionate and funny at the same time New Statesman Moore is a worldwide force ... a cultural icon The Times Outstanding ... with the book's emotional highs and lows, and self-deprecating, empathetic style, Moore triumphs. ... enlightening, engaging, and occasionally enraging Publisher's Weekly Here Comes Trouble is by far Mr. Moore's best book...[his] coming of age as a working-class malcontent is...something to behold. It's the story of a big lunk who learns to yoke his big mouth to a sense of purpose. It persuades you to take Mr. Moore seriously, and it belongs on a shelf with memoirs by, and books about, nonconformists like Mother Jones, Abbie Hoffman, Phil Ochs, Rachel Carson, Harvey Pekar and even Thomas Paine. -- Dwight Garner New York Times

In addition to his work as a bestselling author, Michael Moore is the award-winning director of Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko and Capitalism: A Love Story. He lives in Michigan.
