Perhaps the last chance to read the book that seems to have predicted most of the 20th century, including the electoral scandal.
The Iron Heel by Jack London, pp 1908.
Having predicted the world wars, the rise of facsism, the revolutions in the orient, the collapse of the empires, we go right up to date with this rough edged masterpiece. (Just like old Jack himself).
"This book, without exaggeration, made a profound impression upon me" wrote Leon Trotsky, a man not noted for lavishing praise on his comrades.
Me too! It brought me out of the "retirement" i'd lapsed into after the fall of the USSR. (Jack predicted that too!)
