Dwight Garner: Jared Kushner’s “Breaking History” Is a Soulless and Very Selective Memoir

From a New York Times review by Dwight Garner of the book by Jared Kushner titled “Breaking History: A White House Memoir”:

The United States Secret Service isn’t known for its sense of humor, but when it gave Jared Kushner the code name “mechanic,” was someone betting that he’d call his memoir “Breaking History”?

It’s a title that, in its thoroughgoing lack of self-awareness, matches this book’s contents. Kushner writes as if he believes foreign dignitaries (and less-than dignitaries) prized him in the White House because he was the fresh ideas guy, the starting point guard, the dimpled go-getter.
