DOOLIE, or THE POLARIZATION OF COSMIC RADIATION
Elisha Lowenstein is a fierce investigative journalist for The Houston Chronicle, having burnished her credentials with an award-winning exposé on regional fracking. She is also Jewish. Both of these truths place her in extreme danger when kidnapped by Clay Gilchrist and Julie “Doolie” Fischer—a common-law couple consumed by anti-semitism, conspiracy theories, and the personal wounds suffered during their experiences with Hurricane Ike. As the motives for the kidnapping are revealed, violent rhetoric turns to brutal actions that threaten the lives of all. Set in the early aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, DOOLIE explores the ongoing storm of extremist hatred in America.
