An Instant NYT Bestseller: Nick Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn's New Book "Tightrope"
29 Jan 2020
APB speakers Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's new book Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope is now #2 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Known for their international reporting, the investigative duo turned their focus domestically for the book, examining the epidemic of depression, unemployment, poverty and addiction that is plaguing the working class across America – and the government's failure to address it.
Tightrope was a deeply personal project for Nick and Sheryl; they say, “Our own reporting in the past focused on foreigners, affording us an emotional distance, while this time we spoke with old friends and had no armor. It has been wrenching to see them struggle.” The first married couple ever to win a Pulitzer, this duo is passionate about telling the stories that need to be told, no matter how difficult or painful to research. Sharing hard truths with audiences, they make compelling cases for change.
