At the center of Mark Doten's new satirical novel lies an arresting image: Donald Trump piloting a giant airship, delivering via YouTube an off-the-cuff jeremiad as he ignites a nuclear war that kills 90 percent of the global population. It could happen, right? A cyberthriller for the End Times, Trump Sky Alpha follows Rachel, a grieving journalist, as she endeavors to learn what happened to her wife and daughter when the bombs dropped and documents the use of humor in the final agonizing minutes of the Internet. Named one of Granta's 2017 Best of Young American Novelists, the Brooklyn-based Doten is the literary fiction editor at Soho Press and the author of 2015's The Infernal. Recent political disasters make the crazed scenario of Trump Sky Alpha seem all the more plausible, and Doten's fiction once again demonstrates how our brains have been warped by the perfidious ubiquity of the web. Oh, the humanity, indeed.
