Henry Holt will publish Michael Wolff’s new book Siege: Trump Under Fire on June 4. The book is a sequel to Wolff's 2018 bestseller Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which went on to sell more than a million hardcover copies, according to NPD BookScan. Stephen Rubin, Holt’s chairman, bought the book from Andrew Wylie of the Wylie Agency. John Sterling, the editor of Fire and Fury, will edit the new book, which is embargoed until publication.
Fire and Fury launched book publishing's Trump exposé craze last year, in part thanks to President Donald Trump's attempt to silence Wolff's account by sending a cease-and-desist letter to Macmillan Publishers. Holt is billing the follow-up as "an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side" with "a stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump’s second year as president is getting underway, and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report."
Wolff is the author of seven previous books, and has worked as a regular columnist for Vanity Fair, New York magazine, and the Hollywood Reporter, among other magazines and newspapers. He has won two National Magazine Awards.
