Years into the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, where is the flood of anti-war novels that any decent society would produce? Where is the novelistic exposure of religious and academic, corporate and governmental forces that have built and maintained support for an invasion and occupation that has been judged to be illegal by the head of the U.N. and legal experts across the U.S. and the globe, and has had the predicted effect of increasing the likelihood of attack against the U.S., and was based on fraud as known in advance, and meanwhile has killed over a thousand U.S. troops, and wounded or debilitated tens of thousands, and has killed upwards of 100,000 Iraqis and maimed countless others while destroying their country? Where are the didactic novels, the social protest novels? Where are the lifesaving "muckraking" novels? Where are the thesis novels, the polemic fictions, the novels with a purpose? Or even the realistic novels, the info novels, the governmental novels on the scandalous nature of the ongoing U.S. aggression in Iraq? Political Fiction shows the interplay between imaginative literature and social change, by way of criticism, an anti-war novel, and other culturally critical fiction and poetry.
