About “2020”

Anything can happen in American politics. Especially these days.

Timothy Cooper’s novel, “2020 or My Name is Jesus Christ and I’m Running for President” paints a hilariously envisioned America caught up in presidential politics. In actuality, however, it tells the metaphoric and prophetic tale of the rise of Donald Trump in a carnival campaign for American hearts and minds.

Here Jesus returns to Earth only to find himself pitted against his satanic stepbrother in an all-out contest for the U.S. presidency; indeed, for the very soul of America. Sound vaguely familiar?

And who will win? Well, God only knows; but it's bound to be unlike any political race you’ve ever seen. Ever.

And likely will again.
