When Donald Trump claimed victory in the November 2016 election, the US literary and art world erupted in indignation. Many of America's preeminent writers and artists are stridently opposed to the administration's agenda and executive orders--and they're not about to go gentle into that good night. In this "masterful literary achievement" (Kurt Eichenwald, author of Conspiracy of Fools), more than thirty of the most acclaimed writers at work today consider the fundamental ideals of a free, just, and compassionate democracy through fiction in an anthology that "promises to be both a powerful tool in the fight to uphold our values and a tribute to the remarkable voices behind it" (Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the ACLU).

With an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Viet Thanh Nguyen, and edited by bestselling author Jonathan Santlofer, this powerful anthology includes original, striking art from fourteen of the country's most celebrated artists, cartoonists, and graphic novelists, including Art Spiegelman, Roz Chast, Marilyn Minter, and Eric Fischl.

Transcendent, urgent, and ultimately hopeful, It Occurs to Me That I Am America takes back the narrative of what it means to be an American in the 21st century.
