While much of the US media and the professional political classes whip themselves into a frenzy as to how President Trump got into office and how he is behaving there, the views that really matter - as always - are those of the voters. In her first book, RTE's former Washington Correspondent Caitriona Perry goes beyond the news reports and delves into the American heartland where she witnessed the rise of Donald Trump at first hand.



Speaking to the people who voted for President Trump, she brings to the table the voices of the American people who, too-long ignored and on the edges of an increasingly divided society, rallied their votes and shook the world. In speaking to the workers of the industrial heartland, the women of America, the voices of the immigrant communities, In America answers the question everyone is asking in the wake of one of the most shocking election results in modern times - how did this happen?



A new afterword reflects on Donald Trump's presidency to date and revisits the people spoken to in 2016, giving a valuable insight into what we can expect from election 2020.

My Name is Bridget: The Story of Bridget Dolan and the Tuam Mother and Baby Home
In 1946, twenty-six-year-old Bridget Dolan walked up the path to the front door of the Tuam Mother and Baby Home. Alone and pregnant, she was following in the footsteps of more than a century’s worth of lost souls. Shunned by society for her sins and offered no comfort for her pain, Bridget gave birth to a boy, John, who died at the home in a horrendous state of neglect less than two years later. Her second child was once again delivered at the home and was taken from her, never to be seen or heard from again.

She would go on to marry a wonderful man and have a daughter, Anna Corrigan, but it was only after Bridget’s death – and in the aftermath of the explosive revelations that the remains of 796 babies had been found in a septic tank on the site of the home – that Anna discovered she had two brothers her mother had never spoken about. Was her baby brother’s body in the tank? Anna still doesn’t know.

Through Anna, this book puts on the record the life of Bridget Dolan and all the forgotten women and children of the Tuam Mother and Baby Home.
