From the Publisher
Annotation Matt Ruff creates a believable alternative future in MIRAGE, inverting critical aspects of the present to reveal much about the assumptions and beliefs that define the contemporary moment. On November 9, 2001, a terrorist attack on towers in Baghdad changes everything. For Homeland Security Agent Mustafa Al Baghdadi, who witnessed the attack, it leads him to his career protecting his country against the Christian extremists of the C.S.A, the Christian States of America. When a Texan known as "the crusader" attempts a suicide mission, Mustafa learns of a disturbing possibility that throws his world upside down. Ruff kicks off his exciting novel with clever entries from "reference books" that suggest to readers his premise: details about the philanthropic efforts of Saddam Hussein and the 40 years that Lyndon B. Johnson was in power, among other things. MIRAGE is a provocative book that Ruff jams with thoughtful details that might lead readers to consider if, perhaps, their world is upside down, too.
