Summary
"In time for the one-year anniversary of the Trump Inauguration and the Women's March, this provocative, unprecedented anthology features original short stories from thirty bestselling and award-winning authors--including Alice Walker, Richard Russo, Walter Mosley, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Hoffman, Neil Gaiman, Michael Cunningham, Mary Higgins Clark, and Lee Child--with an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen"--

Review
Writer and artist Santlofer (Inherit the Dead, 2013) presents a potent anthology of short stories and visual art that explores “what it means to be American” and affirms our civil rights in a time of political divisiveness and threats. Thirty-six writers and 14 artists created boldly imagined new works reflecting current concerns, and the result is electrifying, beginning with a rousing introduction by MacArthur fellow Viet Thanh Nguyen (The Refugees, 2017). The defining stories of dissent and compassion include immigrant tales by Julia Alvarez and Susan Isaacs. James Hannaham presents a black couple determined to adopt a white baby; Angela Flournoy offers a caustic take on a university struggling with its racist past. Gish Jen portrays two Asian American law students; Lily King introduces two women refuting 1960s sexism. Other authors include Louise Erdrich, Neil Gaiman, Walter Mosley, Sara Paretsky, and Justin Torres. Eric Fischl, Beverly McIver, and Art Spiegelman provide striking and provocative artworks, while Eric Orner offers an acidly funny ABC about Trump. With proceeds supporting the American Civil Liberties Union, this is an exciting, resonant, and significant volume.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Marking the first anniversary of Trump’s inauguration, this resounding gathering of major literary and artistic talent will inspire avid interest. -- Seaman, Donna (Reviewed 12/15/2017) (Booklist, vol 114, number 8, p87)
