Mark Doten - Trump Sky Alpha — in conversation with Jacob Brogan

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Doten’s first novel, The Infernal, was a darkly satirical look at war that earned him a place on Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists from 2017 list. His second novel plunges into even darker territory, following a president whose streaming YouTube address—delivered as he flies his airship, the eponymous Trump Sky Alpha—provokes a nuclear war. With 90% of the world’s population dead, a journalist sets out to report the story of the final moments of humor on the internet, and to discover what happened to the wife and son she lost. Instead of answers, her investigation lands her in the middle of a conspiracy involving a cult novel and a hacktivist group. Vividly imagined, Doten’s dystopic vision is full of disturbing echoes of our own times.

Doten will be in conversation with Jacob Brogan, assistant editor with Outlook and PostEverything at The Washington Post.
