  • “Strange and timely... most concerned to show how far people will go in a bid to run away from themselves, and how skilfully this desire is courted by corporations... Luridly entertaining fiction.”
    —Times Literary Supplement

    “Part mystery, part road-movie... a wholly original and blackly funny switchback ride.” —Charles Boyle

    “Self-contained satire, where intelligent devils have been surgically planted in every detail.” —Reeling & Writhing, Austlit

    “You can’t help but think that something like this could really happen.” —Angel Magazine

    In a reality-TV show re-enactment of the 1963 Dallas motorcade, one JFK lookalike is killed and another injured. The unhinged widow and the wounded survivor, both disguised in black burqahs, drive from Dallas to Detroit in a gold SUV to hear a murderer’s confession. Tune in to The Big Dealey, a betting show with a line-up of colourful assassination suspects. Watch as colossal brands, religious forces and infotainment wreak havoc with the truth. Race towards HyperFriday, when gamers, viewers and voters are promised the greatest election ever seen.
