Lost Americana: The End of the American Dream

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

As a once great culture flounders, Lost Americana: The End of the American Dream views through the fictional lens of a quagmire of dread, crime, terrorism, poverty, the darkness of narcissism, and the spiritual delusion of a corrupted Christianity and perverted religiosity, navigating a landscape of Absurdism at its zeniths and Nihilism at its nadirs, American's search for purpose and meaning.

Cravens' collection of sixteen vignettes views a stumbling culture's path through suicide, abuse, neglect, escapism, infidelity, perversity, and existentialism.

A prediction of the future? Social commentary? Or what has already come to pass?

Whether its reader is American or World Citizen, this collection will leave one questioning the American way and its path forward.

"Scott possesses that incurable ability to see absurdity where real tragedy occurs, processing America's worst nightmares through a vivid imagination that leaves readers haunted by laughing ghosts they didn't know existed. With fast words and a faster wit, you'd be wise to strap in and enjoy the wild ride."

-Thomas Johnson, Reviews Editor, West Trade Review
