First of all, this isn't the "I Hate Trump" bandwagon where we all snark and sneer at a buffoon and his followers.
This is a collection of subtle and thoughtful horror stories. They are well-written and well-told with, in some cases, great empathy for the deeply-felt impulses of those are drawn to Trump.
This book, inspired by the head-shakingly bizarre candidacy of one Donald Trump, is not a treatise on the horrifying future of his possible presidency, not really. This is no "2016" by that D'Souza guy, who let's all remember, was deeply wrong as well as being very, very incorrect. No, this is a series of tales that explore what might be happening at a deeper level, especially if our daily lives were touched with the supernatural, the possibly demonic, and the downright terrifying.
Read this book for a view of the macabre turn the path of humanity had to take to come to this point, and a through-the-fingers glance at what might be, in a world just a little less sane than this. Or a world exactly like this, wearing glasses that allow us to see beyond the rather slapdash paint and makeup that hides the truly horrific.
Is Trump a demonic minion helping to bring the Apocalypse about? Is he an irresistible spirit that inhabits a helpless man's body? Is the wall he plans to build a physical thing, or something more ethereal and sinister? Will his policies start up whole new industries on how to ruin another person's life? In "Listen To Me" there's a glimpse into the mind of a theoretical Trump supporter, and with no supernatural elements at all, it is easily the most frightening and likely-to-be-true in the whole bunch.
People are not freaked out enough by how surreal and malevolent our present sociological situation is. I believe Bibeau's intent is to raise our consciousness so that we can see reality correctly. It's not that the theater is unsafe and could catch fire. It's already burning down around us, while our eyes are glued to the screen.
The first quotation in the book is from Yeats, "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." How perfect is that, when the keys to our nuclear arsenal are within reach of the short fingers of conman clown Trump?
My favorite story is "E Pluribus Unum," about a man whose being has become completely paralyzed by Trump having taken over his body after a childhood accident. He is as horrified as you and I by Trumps words and actions, but is trapped inside the body he shares with Trump and must experience every grotesque aspect of Trump's life firsthand. This story is wildly creative, and I hope it breaks out somehow, not only into the political mainstream but into every college writing class.
Another of the many great quotes:
"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."
I love that Bibeau published this as a Kindle book, in beautifully readable format, for a buck!
