A new book titled The Last Tycoon, a biography of Donald Trump, is finally out, and the author, Mark Levine, was kind enough to answer a few of our burning questions.1.
Can you tell us more about yourself?
Mark Levine is a writer and filmmaker who has spent the past few years following the rise of Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign.
He is currently an assistant professor of history at the University of Southern California and has written several books on the topic.
The Last Tycoon takes a look at the real estate mogul’s life and business career from his childhood to his rise to the top of the world’s most successful real estate empire.2.
Why did you decide to write a book about Trump?
Levine says he was drawn to Trump because of the way he made people feel.
He wanted to make the book a “sport book,” an emotional rollercoaster of emotions.
The book is full of anecdotes and personal stories, including his first meeting with a woman at a club in Queens.3.
What were the most challenging aspects of writing a book that focuses on Trump?
Levine says the most difficult aspect was trying to write about the real-life Trump, who made people mad, hated the press, and seemed to be a bully.
He also wanted to do a book full of personal stories from the people who knew him best.4.
What was the most rewarding part of writing the book?
Levine credits the fact that he never thought about the book until now, even though he spent a lot of time thinking about it.
He feels like he has a better understanding of the Trump era now, since he’s spent so much time with the person behind it all.5.
How did you come up with the title?
The title comes from an idea he had while watching a documentary about Trump, which was about a real estate developer named Donald Trump.
He said he thought of it because he wanted to call attention to the book, which is about the rise and fall of the realtors, Trump and his associates.
