The inevitable happened. Donald Trump won the 2016 election. What happened next?
Devil’s Elbow is a collection of columns by award-winning newspaper columnist and long-time reporter Marc Munroe Dion. In the book, Dion shines a light on Trump’s America, the bad, the ugly and the moderately OK, using his prickly wit and poignant humor.
Stretching from early 2017, just as President Donald Trump was sworn in, to the end of 2018, just after the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives, Dion’s columns describe how even just two years of Trump’s presidency have transformed this nation, widening an already deep divide and entrenching everyday citizens in this murky swamp of hypocrisy and hatred.
Marc Munroe Dion—award-winning veteran reporter and Pulitzer Price-nominated newspaper columnist—is an old-school newsman who fell out of a Frank Capra movie, complete with pipe and fedora. Born in the struggling former cotton mill town of Fall River, Mass., Dion’s sense of humor sounds more like a barroom than a newsroom, and his political observations are more concerned with issues than political parties. Dion’s column, “Living and Dion,” has appeared in The Herald News for 24 years.
