In this remarkably funny short novel, two aging men arrive at their old factory to wait for their jobs to come back, believing the promises of Donald Trump's campaign. In a pair of lawn chairs, they keep watch over the abandoned site, echoing the president's words and weathering the disorientation that follows, from visions of a dinosaur and a hovering UFO to the opportunistic violence of a white nationalist influencer. A swift meditation on the brute force of words, with all the comedy and urgency of Dave Housley's expert wit.
