In an astonishing feat of empathy and narrative invention, our most ambitious novelist imagines an alternate version of American history.
In 1940 Charles A. Lindbergh, heroic aviator and rabid isolationist, is elected president. Shortly thereafter, he negotiates a cordial "understanding" with Adolf Hitler while the new government embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. For one boy growing up in Newark, Lindbergh's election is the first in a series of ruptures that threaten to destroy his small, safe corner of America - and with it his mother, his father, and his older brother.

Excellently told story and so very moving in our present situation
The gradual unwinding of the plot and the hideously possible nature of the crimes committed.
The reading brings in accent and flourish which I could only guess at as a Brit.
I could not listen to this in one. I had to keep coming back and savouring the building horror.
Just a fantastic bit of guesswork. Who does control Trump after all?
- Dr. Simon G Bell
A bit disappointing
