*ONE OF FLAVORWIRE'S "BEST OVERLOOKED BOOKS" FOR 2015*GAZA, WYOMING takes place in an alternate 2015. In this world, President Obama lost the 2012 election. And after the Israel-Hamas conflict of 2014, President Romney pushed through a Middle East peace plan that required the U.S. to absorb the Palestinian refugee population, outside the West Bank. They built the camps in Wyoming. With this new reality affecting the upcoming 2016 elections, one talented Democratic campaign operative -- a genderqueer individual named Persia VanSlyke -- uncovers a secret that could have grave consequences for hir party. The investigative path ze must pursue is populated by gruff New Gaza officials, a Patriot Act-jailed journalist, a news anchor for a .GIF-based 24-hour web-news broadcast entity, as well as an ex-citizen who has turned himself in to our growing private-prison system (in order to discharge student loan debt). One thing these characters have in common is a desire to find some way forward in an America that is liable to change faster than anyone can strategize in turn.

About the Author:

Seth Colter Walls is a journalist whose criticism has appeared in Slate, the Baffler, and the London Review of Books, among other publications. He has worked for Newsweek International and Lebanon’s Daily Star.

Review:

"The year's best self-published fiction is an unabashedly Pynchonian romp that imagines what would have happened if Mitt Romney had won the last election. (The name of the novel should give you some clue.) No more or less crazy than Margaret Atwood's The Heart Goes Last, to which it likewise bears some resemblance." - Jonathon Sturgeon, Flavorwire

"Seth Colter Walls's beguiling debut novel imagines an insane, American-style solution to one of mankind's most vexing recent problems, and then follows through with novelistic rigor. With more than a shade of early Pynchon, Walls spins out an alternative vision of contemporary history that sheds some unflattering light upon our present. Inhabiting the inner workings of Beltway investigators, New York media stars, and far-flung internment camps for our international guests, Gaza, Wyoming is a book as funny as it is terrifying. If we're not careful, we'll soon all be living there."-Keith Gessen

"Energetic, offbeat.... Walls' wildly serpentine satire ultimately emerges as more than a cleverly penned political lampooning. Along the way, he pauses to reflect on gender nonconformity as well as the greater issues of party politics, privilege, and international relations. Unusual and flawed yet packed with the kind of imaginative brio that fans of political satire will find irresistibly zany." -Kirkus Reviews
