Reviews

"A rollicking ride through Trumpland; Leon takes you on a tour of the stranger side of the States. By turns laugh-out-loud funny and poignant, it's a vital guide to understanding what is happening in America today." -Harriet Alexander, US Correspondent for The Telegraph

"If you've had the courage to peek out of your asshole and take a gander at our devolving America, you won't be shocked the evils and inequities that Harmon Leon takes to task in this book. But you'll be amazed how Leon's hilarious subterfuge of a collapsed system can make us laugh as we slowly swirl down the muddy toilet." -Doug Stanhope, author of This Is Not Fame: A "From What I Re-Memoir"

"Anyone can mock their ideological enemies, but Harmon Leon does something revolutionary here-he actually gets to know them. A natural, endlessly engaging storyteller, Leon's forays into Trump America are fascinating, funny, and incisive. Gonzo journalism at its finest." -Davy Rothbart, creator of Found Magazine, author of My Heart Is an Idiot

"I got more of a sense of Trump's voters from this than from a lot of other reporting." -Nancy Updike, producer of This American Life
