No matter your political leaning, most people can sense the catastrophe that America is barreling towards. Stephen Marche, author of half a dozen books, including The Unmade Bed: The Messy Truth about Men and Women in the Twenty-First Century (2016) and The Hunger of the Wolf (2015), tackles the looming threats to the American experiment in his new book, The Next Civil War: Dispatches from the American Future. 

The New York Times Book Review calls  The Next Civil War, “required reading for anyone interested in preserving our 246-year experiment in self-government.” It is a deeply researched piece of speculative nonfiction that takes a divided America and imagines five nightmarish possibilities most likely to spark chaos in the United States.

Stephen Marche is a novelist and essayist who has written opinion pieces and essays for for The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Esquire, and The Walrus. You can also listen to Stephen talk on his hit audio series, How Not to F*ck Up Your Kids Too Bad, and it’s sequel, How Not to F*ck Up Your Marriage Too Bad on Audible.

Stephen lives in Toronto with his wife and children.
