About the Book

A memoir of four decades into the future set against the backdrop of difficult times in the United States, starting from late 2010 and ending in 2045. This is the story of an unusual American family as they struggle against the convergence of oncoming economic hard times, social ills and political instability. From witnessing a complete economic collapse to the unfolding of a race war to a full-scale revolution, the family matriarch’s dream of riding the success of American civilization, instead veers to living the nightmare of the country’s demise.

About the Author

Ozair Siddiqui was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. Due to the impending civil war of the 1990s, he and his family left Afghanistan to settle in India. For 18 months, they lived in New Delhi from where the family then immigrated to the United States. At first, they settled in the city of Denver, then relocating to the state of California. After establishing himself, Ozair decided to rekindle an old aspiration of becoming a writer. From a young age, Ozair had a penchant for the arts and letter and looked forward to one day becoming a professional writer. However, his hopes were cut short with his emigration. With the challenge of learning a new language and adopting to a new country, he was held back. Despite much effort, language continued to be a persistent problem. However, in the year 2008, Ozair finally attained mastery over the English language. Over the next six years, he polished his language skills. From 2014, Ozair started writing professionally.
