Not wanting to talk about the political and social horrors (which are also political horrors, and vice versa) going on in the US right now is, tragically, the reason why I’ve had Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here for so long and not read it, though I wanted to, because I felt I would have to talk about it, the shitstorm that’s been American politics especially over the last couple of years (but actually going back much much further), which, of course, is the whole reason titles such as this one, and Philip Roth’s The Plot against America, and all the other alternate history dreams of fascist America have been in the public eye again of late. So I’m going to stay strong. Having said that, I will say no more. All you need to know here is why I’m reading this book, and now you know. I have a different blog for the political stuff.
