REVIEW: BAD STORIES, BY STEVE ALMOND

 

For those who were stunned by the 2016 election, Bad Stories is the author’s attempt to make sense of those events. Many did not expect this outcome, or see it coming. It all seemed like a sick joke.

How did we end up with a president so morally bankrupt? How can we rest while the country is in his hands?

The stories we told ourselves, some of them delusional, could not have prepared us for any of it. But stories we tell ourselves are often how we cope with events.

I could not sit down and read this book all at once, but had to digest it in small doses. Like other books we’ve seen and read that tell us about these moments in our history, this book will definitely be one to ponder and read again and again. 4.5 stars.
