"Post-election United States. Presidential Aide Dineh is floating between two equally horrifying nightmares: in one he is serving Republican President Donbo King Tyrump, in the other he is being kicked and humiliated by Democratic President Hilty Crimeton. Who really won the last election, who is in charge of the mightiest country on earth? Both leaders appear drugged, both are extremely aggressive, and both are obsessed with power. Dineh is 'dark', he is a Native American, he is plotting a rebellion, trying to save the world. But can he succeed, facing the entire apparatus of political gangsters and thieves? Tony Christini is at his best. In his novel he is exposing the insanity of empire, its security services and military, its deadly nuclear arsenal. Essential questions are asked and answered, such as: "can the world really survive such a monstrous and racist arrangement?" The book has to be read by every man and woman who is still able to question and to resist. The survival of our Planet is at stake. And Christini's voice is both outraged and determined. It calls for action. It demands action. It is precisely what a political novel is obliged to be during the moments of total darkness.."
"I had a blast reading Empire All In: A Novel of the Trump Era. Tony Christini takes us on a wild ride—as funny as it is frightening. Troubling dreams become a full-blown nightmare as the US falls, like a drunk at the end of a disastrous party, into the arms of President Donbo King Tyrump. Is Christini writing satire or filling us in on our future? Can fiction compete with the bizarre, surrealistic, dystopian, this-can’t-be-true US presidential election? I’d thought not until I read Christini’s Empire All In: A Novel of the Trump Era." MARK BRAZAITIS

“EMPIRE ALL IN: A Novel of the Trump Era” paints the dire realities of life that US election carnivals cover up. Embedded under cover in the Oval Office, the resistance worker protagonist, Dineh, struggles to sur- vive. “EMPIRE ALL IN: A Novel of the Trump Era” puts power in the Incorporated Es- tates of Dearth in its real light: venal, fatuous, and deadly. Set all but entirely in and around the Oval Office, the novel ricochets between financial apocalypse, nuclear holocaust, and military conquest, with the threat of climate collapse overhanging all. “EMPIRE ALL IN: A Novel of the Trump Era” is biting and brilliant and can help set the agenda for political and cultural reform and revolution. In the end, only the resistance is truly alive.
