´You see, if only they didn´t speak English in America, then we´d treat it as a foreign country - and probably understand it a lot better´ ´the sanest man in America´ - Bill Bryson ´Jon Sopel nails it´ - Emily Maitlis With a brand new chapter, charting Trump´s first year in power As the BBC´s North America Editor, Jon Sopel has had a pretty busy time of it lately. In the time it´s taken for a reality star to go from laughing stock to leader of the free world, Jon has travelled the length and breadth of the United States, experiencing it from a perspective that most of us could only dream of: he has flown aboard Air Force One, interviewed President Obama and has even been described as ´a beauty´ by none other than Donald Trump. Through music, film, literature, TV and even through the food we eat and the clothes that we wear we all have a highly developed sense of what America is and through our shared, tangled history we claim a special relationship. But America today feels about as alien a country as you could imagine. It is fearful, angry and impatient for change. In this fascinating, insightful portrait of American life and politics, Jon Sopel sets out to answer our questions about a country that once stood for the grandest of dreams, but which is now mired in a storm of political extremism, racial division and increasingly perverse beliefs.

And potentially the END OF CIVILIZATION…” SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR: ´´It’s one of the FUNNIEST THINGS I’VE EVER READ!” Jack Icefloe Jackson is short, fat, bald and has a 6-inch penis -- although he only uses the first 4 because the 5th would kill a broad and the 6th would open up a rip in the fabric of time. His pleasant days in the Alaskan wilderness dynamite hunting for moose and bear are cut short when Earth is faced with an extinction-level threat. Realizing that the end-of-the-world can only be averted by Icefloe´s superior sexual prowess, President Obama calls on him to use his penis to save us all.

Sick, twisted, and profane, Jack Icefloe Jackson is America’s newest hero, and ROMANCE FOR MEN: Pandora’s Box is its most hilarious new book! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Serena Scott Thomas.
