The 25 letters obtained by Woodward have never been public, according to the Amazon description of the forthcoming book, titled “Rage.” 

Kim described the bond between the two leaders as out of a "fantasy film," according to the book's description. 


Woodward’s book is scheduled to be released Sept. 15, just seven weeks before Election Day. 

“At key decision points, ‘Rage’ shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president,” reads the description of the book. 

Woodward’s book draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents. 

The cover of the book features a close-up shot of half of Trump’s face. 

The book follows Woodward’s first on Trump, titled “Fear: Trump in the White House.” 

Trump said in January he was interviewed by Woodward after he had declined to be interviewed for Woodward's first book on his presidency. 

Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post, where he has worked for 49 years reporting on every president from former President Nixon to Trump.
