Dear Michael Wolff

Dear Mr. Wolff,

I just finished reading Fire and Fury.  And I'm a little perplexed.

First of all, let me congratulate you on a fine book.  My husband (commonly regarded as a sane person, unlike me) is reading it now, and he agrees.  I am very much a literature snob and I can truly say that, though I think it is obvious that the book was rushed into publication (with good reason) before a final edit, it is well written.  And entertaining.  And informative.

And if it's all bullshit...then, dude, you're Tolstoy.

What I find perplexing is the antipathy towards Fire and Fury on the part of the media.  Left and right.  The book is more descriptive than vindictive, so the criticisms of it seem to be a bit overwrought.  Maybe you just rub people the wrong way.  I can see that.

But thank you for the good read.  I highly recommend it.  And I look forward to a sequel.

If you can find anyone who will talk to you.

Your fan,
