Praise

“Is it a surprise that the debut novel from one of our best-known environmental activists focuses on grassroots resistance? In backwoods Vermont, two radicals use an underground radio show to recruit people interested in seceding from the United States. What follows is a zany, witty, and altogether timely imagination of modern resistors.” – The Millions

“Timely..provoctative entertainment…McKibben’s book may well be the lost sequel to Edward Abbey’s The Monkey Wrench Gang…” – Kirkus Reviews

“rollicking…With a playful and quick-moving plot that belies the seriousness of the book’s environmental and political message, McKibben’s stirring call for recognizing the value and power of smallness in a globalized world makes for a vital and relevant fable.”  Publishers Weekly

“In a time when smart comedy is essential to survival, McKibben’s shrewdly uproarious and provocative fable of resistance is exhilarating.” Booklist (starred review)

“Only Bill McKibben could set out to write his first novel and produce an addictive caper loaded with craft beer, contract spies, and chase scenes on cross-country skis! This is James-Bond-meets-A-Prairie-Home-Companion and no one but McKibben could pull it off. He does it with such heart, grace, wisdom and fun that I just couldn’t put it down. A story as outrageous as our times.”
–Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine
 
“What a delicious pleasure to read Radio Free Vermont – a weird and utterly joyous if sometimes hair-raising romp through the dark Wonderland of life under Trump. Bill McKibben is a brilliant storyteller, and I love this book, which is balm for our troubled times.”
–Jay Parini, author of The Last Station
 
“I hope no one secedes, but I also hope that Americans figure out creative ways to resist injustice and create communities where everybody counts.  We’ve got a long history of resistance in Vermont and this book is testimony to that fact.”
–Bernie Sanders
