Omar El Akkad, an award-winning journalist born in Egypt and raised in Qatar, has filed dispatches from Afghanistan, the military trials at Guantánamo Bay, the Arab Spring revolution in Egypt, and the Black Lives Matter movement in Ferguson, Missouri. Now living in Portland, El Akkad turns to fiction with American War, a dystopian tale that begins in 2075 and features disaffected Southern states that secede after a ban on fossil fuels, amid rising sea levels.
