In Decision Points, I rewrite George W. Bush’s presidential autobiography. Through breaking down Bush’s text at the level of the sentence and then reassembling those sentences in a different order, I have created a new autobiography in which Bush’s authorial “I,” in response to having witnessed the moral and economic collapse of his homeland, imagines then commits a number of terrorist actions against the United States of America.
