Fictional History of the United States by Dennis T. Cooper
Book DescriptionA host of talented fiction writers take upon themselves to vitalize American history. As political dishonesty infects the ongoing process of history's creation, a diverse group of America's best fiction writers take on the challenge of creating counter-narratives. From an eclectic and celebrated array of authors and cartoonists - from Amy Bloom to Darin Strauss, Ron Kovic to David Rees - come stories that sweep from 1424 (when the Chinese discovered America) to the new McCarthyism of a post 9/11 world. This daring anthology calls into question everything from the moon landing to the Lindbergh kidnapping, the integration of baseball to the invention of anti-depressants. Riveting, inventive, timely and politically crucial, this collection of original stories is in the best tradition of America's literary commitment to seek the truth.
