American Subversive by David Goodwillie.. Boy meets girl, girl detonates bomb. Goodwillie’s satire is thick, but the knife cuts the cultural malaise like buttah. If you like your humor sharp, ‘snap this.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Part political thriller and part on-the-run love story, Goodwillie's glimpse of the lapsed idealism that might be fueling America's subversive underground falls somewhere between Bret Easton Ellis's Glamorama and John Updike's Terrorist."

Publishers Weekly

"This thriller is less a whodunit than an exploration of what motivates radicalism in an age of disillusionment and impotence."

The New York Times
