Christopher Brown: Failed State

Here comes a new dystopian legal thriller from the author of Tropic of Kansas and Rule of Capture, as Austin's own Christopher Brown talks with Cory Doctorow about what happens in Failed State, Brown's latest literary provocation that explores the aftermath of a second American revolution.

Listen: "Amid the flooded ruins of New Orleans, rebels are building their idea of utopia – which includes kidnapping their defeated adversaries who got rich destroying the country and trying them for their crimes."

Zoom, citizen, from the relative safety of your present home, into a finely wrought future that may very well be among the darkling ones we're facing now.
