FKA USA is a science fiction novel that re-imagines United States in a time where, in the wake of environmental disasters and the catastrophic policies of its final president, the Fifty States have seceded and given way to a series of lawless territories. The story is set in the year 2085 and it will revolve around four central characters: Truckee Wallace, a factory worker in Crunchtown 407 (formerly Little Rock, Arkansas), a talking goat, an android robot who desires to be a human and a former convict lobotomized in Texas. The four of them will go on a journey across the continent with a sensitive political mission on which the fate of the world may just depend.

The book is scheduled to published on June 2019 by Amy Einhorn of Flatiron Books.
