American Judas

Mickey Dubrow (Author)


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.

"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." --Anthony Grooms, author of The Vain Conversation and Bombingham

"Holy moly! Mickey Dubrow mixes a tonic for what ails us. American Judas smartly blends drama, satire, and media culture to free-pour a liberal cocktail about a very American theocracy.... This timely and clever debut novel distills present-day anxieties about power and religion into one terrific read." --Gray Stewart, author of Haylow

"Mickey Dubrow 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 worshippers, 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 Land O' Goshen, Pickett's Charge and The Epicureans
