"Panoramic in scope and exquisite in execution, Who Will Speak for America? is a platform for some of the country's sharpest minds to artistically meditate on life during and after the reign of our Orange Mussolini."--Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood and (with Marwan Hisham) Brothers of the Gun: A Memoir of the Syrian War

"Feldman and Popkin gather a medley of diverse voices to reflect on politics, society, and culture in contemporary America. Essays, poems, fiction, photographs, and cartoons bristle with emotion from contributors responding to issues they consider most urgent: racism, sexism, poverty, and injustice.... A heartfelt and thoughtful collection."--Kirkus Reviews

"This collection of political poetry and prose presents a wide and well-selected array of moderate, progressive, and radical voices united in opposition to Donald Trump's presidency.... [Carmen Maria] Machado's poem 'How I Should Have Known Trump Would Be Elected President' is a powerful and succinct reflection on encountering racism and homophobia.... The selections vary in tone... Thanks to this variety, the collection should appeal to an equally wide range of readers who share the authors' opposition to the 45th president."--Publisher's Weekly
