Foyles Notes

'I think a deficit of empathy is the biggest barrier to achieving peace. I know novelists harp on endlessly about the extent to which literature nurtures empathy… but it’s true.'

Read our full interview with Omar El Akkad on his Author Page.

2074 AMERICA'S FUTURE IS CIVIL WAR. SARAT'S REALITY IS SURVIVAL. THEY TOOK HER FATHER. THEY TOOK HER HOME. THEY TOLD HER LIES. SHE DIDN'T START THIS WAR. BUT SHE'LL END IT.  





'American War creates as haunting a post-apocalyptic universe as Cormac McCarthy did in The Road, and as devastating a look at the fallout that national events have on an American family as Philip Roth did in The Plot Against America.' Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
