American War - A Conversation and Signing with Omar El Akkad The year is 2074 and Florida is underwater. There are new empires in China and the Middle East and a weakened America is in the grip of its Second Civil War. So begins award-winning journalist Omar El Akkad's chilling and remarkable debut novel, American War. El Akkad has spent more than ten years covering the world's most harrowing tensions and combat -- the war in Afghanistan, the military trials at Guantanamo Bay, and the Arab Spring revolution in Egypt included. With 'War', his first fictional offering, he effortlessly blends his journalistic background with a richly imaginative and heartbreaking vision of the future -- one that's rooted, devastatingly, in real life events. Join Oxford Exchange in celebrating this incredible accomplishment with Omar as he discusses his fictional work, journalistic experience, and the individual stories and pains that ripple across it all.
