As a Hillary voter, a New York Times reporter, and a frequent attendee at her local gay bars, Nellie Bowles fit right in with her San Francisco neighbors and friends - until she started questioning whether the progressive movement she knew and loved was actually helping people.

When her colleagues suggested that asking these questions meant she was 'on the wrong side of history,' Bowles did what any reporter worth her salt would do: she started investigating for herself. The answers she found were stranger - and funnier - than she’d expected.

In Morning After the Revolution, Bowles gives readers a front-row seat to the absurd drama of a political movement gone mad. With irreverent accounts of attending a multi-day course on 'The Toxic Trends of Whiteness,' following the social justice activists who run 'Abolitionist Entertainment, LLC,' and trying to please the New York Times's 'disinformation czar,' she deftly exposes the more comic excesses of a movement that went from a sideshow to the very centre of Western life.

Deliciously funny and painfully insightful, Morning After the Revolution is a moment of collective psychosis preserved in amber.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Not since Joan Didion in her prime has a writer reported from inside inside a system gone mad with this much style, intelligence and wit. I read Nellie Bowles' Morning After the Revolution with gathering excitement - it's a perfect book' - Caitlin Flanagan

'Wickedly enjoyable' - Rachel Cooke, Observer

‘Bowles goes out and gets the story rather than theorising from the comfort of her desk … The snapshots built a transfixing collage of lunacy, but I ended every chapter longing to know more … Bowles writes with commendable (and slightly scary) frankness’ - Sarah Ditum, The Times

‘Bowles’s insistence on pursuing the truth — on being curious about what is true, and what is going on — is an animating feature of Morning After the Revolution’ - Kat Rosenfield, Unherd
