Summary
"Ariel Dorfman's latest collection is an emotionally raw yet measured assessment of the United States after the election of Donald Trump, highlighting the troubling parallels between Trump and repressive regimes of the past. With corruption and repression looming, Dorfman wonders, can the United States avoid the same kind of political interference it practiced in the past? Concise, original, and even playful, Dorfman provides a cleareyed take on our state of disunion. The Inquisition, Frankenstein, civil rights struggles, "the bridge on the river Kwai," Pinochet and Nelson Mandela all have a role to play in this far-ranging collection from a writer Time magazine calls a "literary grandmaster.""--Jacket flap
