Moses v Trump: A Contemporary Novel is a work of modern day dramatic fiction by author David Dorsen. A fictional account based on true events, the novel follows the lawsuit where Ira Moses took on the legal counsel of Donald Trump when he and an evangelical magazine were both sued for libel. This came from the fact that Trump’s Secretary of Commerce, Kate Kruiser, made a statement that illegal immigrants were actually good for the economy, after which Trump had her indicted for perjury and Ira Moses came on board to represent Kruiser. What followed was a bitter slanging match in the public eye of Twitter and a fierce courtroom battle where many shots were fired.
In the current climate, books like these attempt to make sense of the goings-on of the privileged and elite for the rest of us to better understand it. I think that David Dorsen captures plenty of the current attitudes against immigrants and the scary tactics that the Trump government now uses to gain control of both the media and the law to make themselves heard. The tale of Ira Moses is one of trial and struggle, and an important lesson in the modern world. The fictionalized style never deviates too deeply into the emotional, making the tale feel readable but also as real as possible to current events. Overall, Moses v Trump: A Contemporary Novel is a highly engaging read for people interested in the workings of politics and law, an accomplished story by a great writer.
