The Gilded Rage is a sharp corrective to the glib demographic explanations-cum-dismissals of Trumpism that are now fashionable among liberals in the Northeast corridor. Zaitchik’s close-up portraits of the Trump insurgency offer up complicated, often self-questioning accounts of his subjects’ idiosyncratic paths to ardent Trump support. The overall effect of these unrushed, painstaking interviews is to show a Trump electorate whose members—much like the rest of us—are deeply anxious and concerned about their precarious standing in a political and economic order that hasn’t given them any grounds for hope.”
