“It’s ridiculous. They know nothing about me. I won’t be reading it.”

— Donald Trump, about this book to the New York Post, April 12, 2016

“If it’s a bad book, it would be very detrimental to me. It shouldn’t be a bad book. If you’re going to do it, we might as well try and get it right…. That’s why I’m talking to you.”

— Trump, to the authors, April 21, 2016

“This is a lot of fun. Let’s keep talking.”

— Trump, to the authors, April 21, 2016

“If you do a negative book on me, watch: it won’t sell. It’s probably going to be a negative book, but what the hell.”

Something in the Air

A sweeping, anecdotal account of the great sounds and voices of radio and how it became a bonding agent for a generation of American youth. Read excerpts:

Prologue: The Magic of Radio

Chapter 1: Omaha Morning

“Marc Fisher is a sage of American popular culture, and his writing about radio and rock at the height of their influence is as lively and entertaining as the subject. Something in the Air has an uplifting pulse; it is also an important work of unconventional history.”

— Steve Coll, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Ghost Wars”

A wildly entertaining, definitive book on the history and future of radio. Fisher's energetic, backbeat-style prose is just right.

— George Pelecanos, author of “The Night Gardener”

A rich and vibrant cultural history, brimming with small, poignant surprises and big, outlandish personalities. Something in the Air transcends the story of radio to tell a larger story of how modern America talks to itself.

— Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “An Army at Dawn” and “The Long Gray Line”

After the Wall: Germany, the Germans and the Burdens of History

The book is a reporter’s view of Germany after reunification, focusing on the country’s struggle with its history during a century of trauma and aggression. The book stemmed from Fisher’s four years reporting in Germany, beginning with the dramatic events of autumn 1989.
