The Death of Truth: Notes on Falsehood in the Age of Trump by Michiko Kakutani | Conversation Starters

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and literary critic Michiko Kakutani has written the New York Times bestselling book Death of Truth. Readers and critics alike praise Kakutani’s book. Kakutani writes a very passionate critique of how America has retreated from reason. She says that we live in a time that objective truth is being mocked and discounted by the residents of the White House. There have been discredited ideologies and conspiracy theories. Science is being debated. Russian propaganda is flooding the media. The wisdom of the many usurps that of research and people are left clinging on to whatever confirms our respective biases. It’s saddening to see that truth has become quite endangered in modern America. This decline is not new and has begun a few decades ago. Kakutani shows how cultural forces and trends have led to this change. 

The San Francisco Chronicle praises Kakutani’s penetrating book. They say that her book is “essential for understanding the corrosive effects of an ongoing, relentless assault on truth.” Jane Mayer says that The Death of Truth is “politically urgent and intellectually dazzling.”
