Pending the official results of the presidential election, the United States is holding its breath. In Paris, Jake Lamar too. The African-American writer, born in the Bronx in 1961, has lived in France since 1993. Since then, he has never ceased to follow American political life very closely, nor to write about his native country.
After witnessing the rise of conservatism in the United States in the 1980s, Jake Lamar regained hope in 2008, with the election of Barack Obama. Eight years later, it’s disillusionment. From the other side of the Atlantic, he witnesses the political rise of Donald Trump, and observes the resurgence of racial questions in his country of origin. For Jake Lamar, the president has fractured American society, leaving it in an even worse state than he had imagined, twenty years earlier, in his dystopian novel, “We had a dream”.
For Code Source, he presents his vision of American society at the microphone of Clawdia Prolongeau.
