Turtledove, Harry  
Joe Steele
When Democratic candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt dies in a fire, the party has little choice but to nominate his running mate, California congressman Joe Steele, son of a Russian immigrant laborer. After a landslide victory, Steele's critics believe the government is gaining too much control, but they tend to find themselves in work camps if they make too much noise about it. And most people welcome strong leadership, full employment, and an absence of complaining from the newspapers - especially as Hitler and Trotsky begin the kind of posturing that seems sure to drag America into war.

Vonnegut, Kurt  
Novels 1987-1997: Bluebeard / Hocus Pocus / Timequake
Bluebeard: The colorful tale of a phenomenally gifted realist painter who betrayed his artistic vision for commercial success. Now in his seventies, he writes his memoirs and plots his revenge on the worldly forces that conspired to corrupt his talent.

Hocus Pocus: A freewheeling prison memoir by a Vietnam vet and disgraced academic, speaking to a range of still-burning issues, including free speech, racism, environmental calamity, deindustrialization, and globalization.

Timequake: Part science fiction yarn (starring perennial protagonist Kilgore Trout), part diary of the mid-1990s (starring Vonnegut himself), fusing satirical fantasy and personal essay.
