New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, Glenn Thrush to Co-Author Book About Trump Presidency

Untitled book will be a “comprehensive, deeply reported” account of the Trump administration’s early period

New York Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush have signed a deal with Random House for a book about the Trump presidency, the publisher announced on Tuesday.

The untitled book will chronicle the early period of the Trump administration and is described as “a comprehensive, deeply reported look at a history-making president.” No release date has been announced, and details of the pair’s advance are being kept under wraps.

“I’ve admired their work from afar for a long time,” said Random House editor-in-chief Andy Ward in an interview with Vanity Fair. “This is the story of our time and I think they’re well positioned to write it.”

Haberman and Thrush serve as White House Correspondents for the Times and with numerous shared bylines have become particularly well known for their extensive coverage of the inner workings of the administration. Both veterans of Politico and the New York tabloid world, Haberman has been with the Times since 2015, while Thrush joined in January.

Thrush has written one e-book, the 2012 presidential campaign book “Obama’s Last Stand.” Haberman co-authored “Held Captive: The Kidnapping and Rescue of Elizabeth Smart,” with New York Post colleague Jeane MacIntosh in 2003.
