In real life, no one tells you what is happening. You pick “the truth” up by combining tidbits of information, gossip, newspaper fillers, rumor, confidential memos, telephone messages, fake news and maybe-fake-news-but-who-knows. A Hat Rack in a Snake Farm is written as a collection of the above which, together, reveal the story. This is an on-the-ground look at what happens when there are millions of public dollars "for the taking" and the corporate hyenas gather. It’s a tale of ongoing fraud, deceit, duplicity, doublespeak, treachery, and trickery which is pretty much the way it really is.
