Saving Our World from Trump (2021) by Mort Rosenblum
Saving Our World From Trump (2021)

“Mort Rosenblum, likely the most traveled correspondent in the history of journalism, has borne brilliant, incisive witness to reality in 200 countries, some which no longer exist. Here, he wields the scalpel of his inimitable prose to cut crap from truth in his own country — lest it disappear, too.”
—Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us and
Countdown.

“Rosenblum has brought the intrepid rigor of his 30 years as a war correspondent to bear on France’s battle to remain the world’s source of fine food. The result is a rollicking roll through the heart, myth, soul – and belly – of the land of Bon Appetit, a century after Escoffier. More, please.”
—Molly O’Neill, New York Times Magazine

The Secret Life of the Seine (1995)

“Rosenblum’s moveable feast has a top speed for five knots – fast enough for fun, languid enough for dreaming. Take the trip you’ll never take: This is what books are for.”
Garry Trudeau

“In Mort Rosenblum’s pilgrimage my heart filled with yes at every word. This is more than a trip through Paris but rather the sound of the whole world through the silent language of the Seine.”
Marcel Marceau

Back Home: A Foreign Correspondent Rediscovers America (1989)

“Mort Rosenblum hasn’t rediscovered America; he’s discovered a new America. It’s an extraordinary land of curious customs, fine places, and restless natives. You won’t believe it until you see it, and you won’t see it until you let Rosenblum show you the way.”
—Linda Ellerbee

“The book’s excellence owes much to fact and firsthand experience, and possibly more to the author’s nonchalant tone.”
The New Yorker

Coups and Earthquakes (1981)

“Not since the late A.J. Leibling – with whom Mr. Rosenblum shares wide experience with wolfish good humor – has anyone so successfully sized up the waywardness and splendor of newsgathering. Everyone who reads newspapers should read this book.”
