New York Times best-selling author Richard North Patterson discusses his latest book, “Fever Swamp: A Journey Through the Strange Neverland of the 2016 Presidential Race,” a unique blend of political commentary and prose, filled with detailed accounts of a bizarre campaign, all written in real time. In this bracing, funny book, Patterson brings to bear a novelist's piercing sensibility to the process of examining the election, moments that betray a candidate's character and inner life, and holds up a mirror to the American population. Patterson is the author of 22 best-selling novels, including “Eden in Winter,” “Loss of Innocence,” “Exile,” “Degree of Guilt,” and “Silent Witness.” His articles on politics, literature, and law have been published in The London Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, and San Jose Mercury News.
