"Mr. King looks at all our upcoming problems, and imagines a local reaction to each one. The result is often funny, usually sardonic, and always imaginative, what with all the mole rats, flesh drones, dimeheads, and especially 'The Grifter's Guide to the Territories FKA USA, ' a notable addition to the line of imaginary authorities."

About the Author
"A sort of 'Mad Max' reimagining of The Wizard of Oz, complete with its own version of the Yellow Brick Road....King, the novel's pseudonymous author, takes infectious joy in his imagined world; its impressive layers are the best reason to read the book. FKA USA has a lot to offer."
"I liked FKA USA so much. I mean, there were a lot of reasons. It is, in many ways, the sort of book I'm always looking for...a visionary head-trip of apocalyptic political satire...absolutely, mind-blowingly, ridiculously crazy."
"[An] absurdist depiction of the US on the verge of collapse, complete with talking goats and narcissistic billionaire presidents--okay, maybe it isn't that absurd."
"Cunning...Outrageous...Apocalyptic fiction with a hearty serving of weird."
--Booklist, starred review
"Eminently readable...fantastic characters...An epically concocted apocalyptic vision of America in all its faded glory."
"[An] epic and wild story."
"FKA USA is a satirical, Wizard of Oz road trip through a post-apocalyptic fairground, and well worth joining for the ride."
