America is broken. You don't need a fistful of statistics to know this. Visit any city, and evidence of our shattered social compact will present itself. From Appalachia to the Rust Belt and down to rural Texas, the gap between the wealthiest and the poorest stretches to unimaginable chasms. Whether the cause of this inequality is systemic injustice, the entrenchment of racism in our culture, the long war on drugs, or immigration policies, it endangers not only the American Dream but our very lives. In Tales of Two Americas, some of the literary world's most exciting writers look beyond numbers and wages to convey what it feels like to live in this divided nation. Their extraordinarily powerful stories, essays, and poems demonstrate how boundaries break down when experiences are shared, and that in sharing our stories we can help to alleviate a suffering that touches so many people.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The prose throughout is top quality, and readers drawn by the famous writers involved will also enjoy discovering authors previously unknown to them. Publishers Weekly
“Masterful and affecting stories, essays, and poems by thirty-six writers profoundly attuned to the sources and implications of social rupture. These are sharply inquisitive and provocative works.” Booklist (starred review)
