Set in Washington during the 2000 election, Alex and other activists wage the Campaign for Nobody the year Nobody wins more convincingly than ever. A government agent sullies Alex's name by half-enlisting him to implicate immigrant women, but Alex survives the escalating protests and parties to reenact the telephone conversations between Bush and Gore on election night at a lavish inaugural ball.

Len Bracken is the author of the first biography on French filmmaker Guy Debord; he also penned one of the first books published in the United States suggesting 9/11 was an inside job. Snitch Jacket is his fourth novel.

"Bracken's first love is fiction, and there lies the rub. His novels are weird-some would say, intensely weird. Take the opening scene from his latest, Snitch Jacket. An anarchist activist makes passionate love to a glamorous TV anchor. On the floor of the Library of Congress. While they're both drunk on coca-infused wine. And a blaze they started begins to consume the national landmark. From such startling material, Bracken builds a bold fictional universe in which he mixes extreme politics, conspiracy theory, obscure cultural movements and - oh, yes - lots of explicit sex." Zach Dundas, Associated Press

"By exposing and exploding the illusion of opposition between the world views of conspiracy theory and radical theory, a dangerous novel is created. Stylistically similar to pataphysics and informed by the Situationists and W. Reich, this is a fascinating read. Theory is woven seamlessly into the narrative in a way that does not interrupt the flow of the story. This work is important." Jason Rodgers Media Junky

"Len Bracken continues his assault on the powers that be with his new novel, Snitch Jacket: an intriguing expose of the political underworld in Washington, D.C. If you want to catch the tenor of the times, from opiated subversive sects to hubristic national security forces, with a generous tempo of eros and rage, this is the book for you. Look out for Len Bracken." Allan Graubard, author of ROMA AMOR
