by Mickey Dubrow
For fans of Philip K. Dick’s The Man In the High Castle and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
A BLOODLESS RELIGIOUS COUP turns the American dream into an American nightmare where dissenters are jailed. Religious right-wingers rule the land, and those who resist the oppressive theocracy are forced into reeducation camps until they repent or disappear. A young Jewish-Gentile couple desperately navigates the tyrannical new regime by remaining invisible. But after a coworker outs Seth Ginsberg for secretly practicing Judaism, the rising political aide and his feisty wife are left with menacing options, trapped between soul-crushing internment in a Savior Camp or a rugged race for the Mexican border. This timely dystopian thriller will keep readers turning pages and leave them afraid, angry, and thoughtful about America in the 21st Century.
Mickey Dubrow is not about subtlety—he sends us an angry roar against unholy hypocrisy. In the pages of this dystopia, the National Church of Christ makes sure the American way stays straight and narrow … by cruelly reforming homosexuals, drug addicts, adulterers, Satan worshipers, and Liberals. The message of American Judas is like watching a naked National Church choir: The pious hymns will never reach the angels, because the chubby, sweating bodies belong to animals.
—Charles McNair, author of author of Land O’Goshen, Pickett’s Charge, and The Epicureans
Part mystery, part dystopia, American Judas is satiric and stinging. Set in a future when the American way is “God and guns” and inspectors invade your privacy to verify your faith, this novel cuts awfully close to home. It is as provocative as The Handmaid’s Tale, and just as important to read.
—Anthony Grooms, author of The Vain Conversation and Bombingham
A gripping, timely story of religious intolerance, oppression, and the America we might one day become.
—Sheri Joseph, author of Where You Can Find Me
