This experimental novel begins with President Trump authorizing nuclear Armageddon from a special presidential Zeppelin bound for Mar-A-Lago. It only gets more surreal from there, as a traumatized reporter investigates how the end of the world was triggered by an online conspiracy. This novel is best suited for readers who enjoy a book that lets its ideas and themes run rampant, providing plenty of social and technological commentary. It gets weird and goes to some dark places, so prepare yourself! In embracing absurdity, this novel manages the rare feat of capturing the cartoonish nature of contemporary politics, as well as the anarchic spirit of Internet memes and hacker culture.
