With President Bird’s popularity at an all-time low, his chief strategist Michel Battement gathers a panel of “atypical advisors” to plan a last-chance televised address. Cloistered in a basement bunker while activists storm the presidential palace, Battement and his gang of eccentrics plot to save their inept parvenu of a president—or sink him once and for all. Set in a disturbingly familiar alternate universe, this oddball gem is a savagely witty satire of political pundits and their so-called expertise, a hilarious nightmare of what happens when incompetence reigns. Dystopia has never been funnier.
