Description - God Bless America by Piers Morgan
Piers Morgan never really got on with America. And America had never really got on with him. But flitting between British shores and the Land of the Free, he discovers his burgeoning celebrity as the 'nasty Brit' on a top-rated US TV series gives him unprecedented access to people, places and parties on both sides of the pond - from chinwags with Gordon Brown to a cigar-smoking session with Arnold Schwarzenegger; chatting with the Queen to going head to head with America's most popular redneck on "Celebrity Apprentice". Not to mention hilarious tete-a-tetes with Boris Johnson and frequently revealing, sometimes bizarre, encounters with the likes of everyone from Donald Trump to Paris Hilton, Tony Blair to Alistair Campbell, Jay-Z to Jerry Springer. It's not all plain sailing, though, as Piers finds himself snubbed by the paparazzi, subjected to national ridicule by Alan Sugar and, foolishly, embarking on a visit to the Playboy Mansion with his girlfriend. Throughout all this, Piers, and everyone he meets, from premiers to pop stars, becomes increasingly caught up in the drama of the race for the Presidency.
As a charismatic young contender by the name of Barack Obama moves center-stage, Piers gives himself up to the excitement of an election like no other. To his delight and astonishment, he realizes that America may be on the cusp - not just of change - but of a revolutionary moment in the history of the world's only superpower.
