Basket of Deplorables : Shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize Paperback / softback
by Tom Rachman
SHORTLISTED FOR THE EDGE HILL PRIZEAlmost-true stories for a post-truth worldWrong!
Not Nice! Sad!A Manhattan party on election night. Liberal media types gather with big grins and high-end canapes to watch the Trump-Clinton results come in, expecting a smooth victory for Hillary.
As the outcome shifts and they descend into panic, the host stands abruptly before her guests, confessing a shocking crime of years before.
What follows is a series of witty, cutting, addictive tales of Trump times, portraying Democrats and Republicans in a divided America, from powerful to powerless, angry to thwarted, from a Starbucks barista who dreams of making it on the stage, to a couple whose online date goes bitterly awry, to a charmingly wicked U.S. businessman living undercover in rural Italy. Basket of Deplorables is a timely take on the craziness of today: almost-true fiction for a post-truth world.
