WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The world may be starting to burn, but Biedermann has it all under control. He's a respected member of his community with a loving wife and a flourishing business, so surely the arsonists will spare him. As an upstanding citizen, he's even happy to do his civic duty by opening his home to two new guests…but when they start filling his attic with drums of gasoline, will he end up starting the fire himself?

Written as a reflection on the rise of both Nazism and Communism, The Arsonists has uncanny new relevance today in light of the rise of populist nationalism around the globe.
