In the eyes of Ben Fountain, America is facing a third existential crisis. The struggle over slavery was the first, the Great Depression the second and now, the third, Donald Trump. How will this crisis end? Beautiful Country Burn Again takes the USA’s love affair with guns, addiction to celebrity culture, and Trump and explores how the US has reached this new level of crisis while posing the questions, how and what can make America truly great again?
