Description - I Heart Oklahoma! by Roy Scranton
A bleeding-edge contemporary novel that dives into the heart of Donald Trump's America.
Three artists set out across the country to make a movie. There's Suzie, the jaded writer; Jim, a corporate suit-turned-video artist who survived 9/11; and a hipster videographer, Remy. They team up to make a piece of "road movie" video/performance art about about "freedom and democracy and starting over and making a clean break and moving forward and making America great again." From that jumping-off point, Roy Scranton takes us on a provocative, genderqueer, shape-shifting response to our current moment. I Heart Oklahoma is a non-linear, formally daring book about art, guns, American landscapes, American history, and American stupidity, that moves from a bleeding-edge look at our current moment to a furious, Faulknerian retelling of the Charlie Starkweather spree killings of the 1950s, capturing along the way in its fragmented, mesmerizing form, the violence that has always been near the heart of the American dream.
