A 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.
