Synopsis

This stunning anthology features literary artists in America's social justice arena from 1980 on. Selected fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction challenge the myth of a classless democracy, redefine the family, deconstruct American notions of race and patriotism, and track the growth of environmental awareness within the American psyche. The collection draws connections among groups traditionally siloed by race, gender, class, or sexuality.

Alexie, Dorothy Allison, Marvin Bell, Barrie Jean Borich, Nickole Brown, Philip Bryant, James Cihlar, Alison Deming, Anthony Doerr, Mark Doty, Heid Erdrich, Louise Erdrich, B.H.
