When the world around us feels like an exaggeration of extremes, how do our modern satirists bring absurdity to the page in a way that doesn’t feel like reading the news? Ryan Chapman (Riots I Have Known), Fernando Flores (Tears of the Trufflepig) and Mark Haber (Reinhardt’s Garden) discuss their satirical new novels and the art and challenge of writing the absurd in absurd times.
