Sarah Kendzior is best known for her reporting on St. Louis and the 2016 election, her academic research on authoritarian states, and her New York Times bestselling debut The View from Flyover Country. She is a co-host of the podcast Gaslit Nation and was named one of Foreign Policy’s “100 people you should be following on Twitter to make sense of global events.” Her reporting has been featured in Politico, The Atlantic, Fast Company, The New York Times, Globe and Mail, and more. She lives in St. Louis.
In her unflinching hardcover debut HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: The Invention of Donald Trump and the Erosion of America (Flatiron Books; April 7, 2020; Hardcover), New York Times bestselling author Kendzior unveils a startling portrait of the way foreign powers and organized crime have infiltrated our democracy, setting the stage for an autocratic leader like Donald Trump to take power.
HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT gives readers an in-depth, comprehensive narrative to hold on to in the shifting sands of a 24-hour news cycle driven by click bait, drawing connections between events that span nearly forty years. In this bitingly honest book, Kendzior takes her singular commitment to speak the truth from the digital space, where she has over half a million followers on Twitter, to the printed page to document whispers of criminal activity and leave a record for generations to come.
