Before he became an Oscar-winning filmmaker and all-round thorn-in-the-side of corporate America, it turns out that throughout his life Michael Moore had an uncanny knack for showing up just where history was being made. One moment he's a lost eleven-year-old boy being found by Bobby Kennedy; the next, he's in a cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. He begins his first underground newspaper in fourth grade; sixteen years later, the police are raiding his printing office. On top of all that, he becomes one of the youngest elected officials in the country at eighteen - but not before planning a 'dry-run' escape to Canada with his stoner friends in case they get drafted to Vietnam. Fast-forwarding to 2003, his Oscar acceptance speech leaves audiences open-mouthed. And none of that even comes close to the night a friendly priest decides to show him how to perform his own exorcism. Here Comes Trouble takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. It might just be the most hilarious, provoking, poignant and inspiring non-autobiography you ever read.
