Born into a fabulously wealthy family of seemingly continuous intrigues, betrayals and conflicts, Mary L. Trump did not seek the spotlight. She earned a master’s in literature at Columbia and a doctorate in psychology at Adelphi University.

These disciplines seem to have prepared her to understand and reveal deep truths in a way that would make the family’s secret-keepers freak out. It’s safe to assume they are freaking out now.

In late July Dr. Trump will publish a book, ominously titled, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.
