The Civil War at Home (Novel)
In the suburbs of middle America, two men engage in a growing political and social media fight. Their passionate disagreement, though superficially focused on politics, is fed by assumptions about class, economics, immigration, race, and the legacy of a horrific sexual crime. Ultimately the feud leads to violence and tragedy for both families. The story of two families is also the story of the polarization dividing the nation, and how stereotypes and anger can blind each side of a political divide to their common humanity.
"Impressively compassionate." - Kirkus Reviews
"Every American seeking connections between classes, races, and political divides needs to absorb the thought-provoking, realistic, and fast-paced action of The Civil War at Home, a novel highly recommended for its closer inspection of the roots of discord than most accounts about the Trump era would provide." - Midwest Book Review
