On why he wrote the novel:

Regina Leader-Post - - YOU -

“I needed to step away from the news cy­cle some time dur­ing 2015-2016. It was oc­cur­ring to me more and more that the de­bates I had found even my­self part of in the pub­lic arena had be­come that which were di­vid­ing us as a coun­try more and more, that we en­tered the con­ver­sa­tions now as three-year-olds and to be in the con­ver­sa­tion was to be a three-year-old. The only way I felt I could re­spond to it was a kind of satire — to choose to laugh, in­stead of vent, or in­stead of rage.”
