Mickey Dubrow’s debut novel "American Judas" is a dystopian tale about a young couple’s life after opportunistic U.S. politicians abolish the wall of separation between Church and State. Seth and Maggie Ginsberg do their best to navigate an oppressive theocracy where fundamental Christianity is the only legal religion, and abortion, homosexuality, and adultery are outlawed. When a co-worker outs Seth as a Jew, Seth escapes to Mexico, while Maggie is sent to a Savior Camp. "American Judas" mixes political satire, suspense, and family drama.

Dubrow will be in conversation with Alison Law, host of the Literary Atlanta podcast, for this October Writers at the Wrecking Bar event. Slim Chance kicks off the evening with music at 7 p.m. The author interview begins at 7:30 p.m. Dubrow will sign copies of the book at the event.

About the Author

What matters most to Mickey Dubrow is that the reader is never bored. Mickey is passionate about telling stories that offer fresh perspectives while also being entertaining, and he wants readers to feel excitement, sympathy, amusement, joy, and maybe even a little anxiety when they read his work. In college, he wrote and drew a cartoon strip before moving on to work in television for thirty years. But even with his extensive experience and success, he didn’t believe he had talent for writing fiction…so he decided to write a novel for the fun of it, and he’s been hooked ever since. In "American Judas," Mickey explores, among other possibilities, lost faith in America and what this might mean for the freedoms we cherish so much. He holds a BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. As a freelance writer and producer for television, his clients include CNN, Turner South, Cartoon Network Marketing, HGTV, and SRA/McGraw Hill.
