Happy Publication Day for The People Are Going To Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore by Jared Yates Sexton
The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore is a firsthand account of the events that shaped the 2016 presidential election and the cultural forces that divided both parties and powered Donald Trump into the White House. Featuring in-the-field reports as well as deep analysis, Sexton’s book is not just the story of the most unexpected and divisive election in modern political history. It is also a sobering chronicle of our democracy’s political polarization–a result of our self-constructed, technologically assisted echo chambers.
Like the works of Hunter S. Thompson and Norman Mailer–books that have paved the way for important narratives that shape how we perceive not only the politics of our time but also our way of life–The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore is an instant classic, an authoritative depiction of a country struggling to make sense of itself.
“Sexton’s reporting provides a unique nuts-and-bolts look at the campaigns, and his eyewitness reports of the aggressive displays at Trump rallies are both terrifying and fascinating.” – Publisher’s Weekly

About This Book Is Not For You by Daniel A. Hoyt
Utilizing an innovative mash-up of genres, including pulp fiction, dark comedy, and metafiction, Hoyt’s novel charts the actions of a 19-year-old punk, who is set to help blow up a building but at the last minute, steals the dynamite instead. Though averting destruction, he inherits an entirely different brand of trouble, one that forces him to examine his own dark past: his history of violence, his abandonment as a baby, and his struggles with alcoholism.
