This is not the future you were promised. You know the rules. If you still want to play the game of American life, then you had better learn to lie. Kneel before false gods. Pretend to care about the ruling class and their illusions. Keep your head down. Pray that no one sees you. But what if someone had forgotten how to lie, and had written a book that destroyed their hopes of a literary career? Look no further: This is Kobek’s comic novel about: – The Queen of Fairy Land and her misadventures in Los Angeles – A Saudi prince practicing Neoliberal philanthropy by day and sexual torture by night – #MeToo – Christianity – The structure of social complicity. – Millions of dead Muslims – The enduring importance of kindness Just remember: every suicide needs its note.
