American War is the first novel by Canadian-Egyptian journalist Omar El Akkad. It is an audacious and powerful debut novel: a second American Civil War, a devastating plague and one family caught deep in the middle of a story that asks what might happen if America were to turn its most devastating policies and deadly weapons upon itself.
