Kirkus Reviews calls Timothy Cooper's new novel, 2020, an "opus [that] echoes the current state of contemporary unrest in Washington, D.C., and the world at large..." It says that it's "an ambitious literary undertaking... [and] a unique and humorous political caricature parodying the country's electoral process, its numerous hypocrisies and mudslinging behaviors, and (if thinly veiled) Donald Trump's cabinet selection process..." It also describes 2020 as "eccentric and often hilarious satire... [that] "more closely resembles a whirlwind kaleidoscopic fever dream than a campaign trail chronology...." Kirkus suggests that readers may be "enthralled by Cooper's creatively inspired grasp on the concept of farcical political lampooning," and concludes that 2020 is "entertainment tailor-made for fans of political fiction who want a fantastical, vividly realized escape from the bizarro reality of contemporary government." -- Kirkus Reviews
