Dystopias: Trump’s First 100 Days
In this month’s podcast we look at President Trump’s first hundred days in office and the concurrent rise of interest in dystopian fiction. Will Rycroft joins Howard Jacobson to discuss how he transformed indignation into his new novel, Pussy. Yale Professor Timothy Snyder reads from his ‘intervention’ On Tyranny, and Stuart Williams and Will Smith speak on the book’s schedule-defying publication. We close with Charlotte Knight, Fiona Wilson and Will Rycroft trying to understand the surge of interest in classic fictional dystopias. It’s not as bleak as it sounds.
