In his debut novel «Freedom City,» Philip Becnel hilariously ridicules the current kakistocracy (government run by the worst people) in a gripping satire that pays homage to «The Monkey Wrench Gang.»
After President Trump unceremoniously dies from a stroke, four misfits from D.C. sever the heads of Confederate statues and wage a comedic guerrilla war on post-Trump America. When President Pence enlists droves of fascist volunteers to crush the “alt-left” uprising, the rebels must risk their lives to run the fascists out of D.C. What follows is not only a battle for survival—but a desperate search for remnants of what once made America great: compassion, empathy, and love.
