The short stories by more than 35 prominent contemporary authors in this anthology share the theme of contemplating the tenets of democracy in uncertain political times, with the aim of supporting the ACLU. An array of male and female narrators takes turns providing narrations of the various stories, with a corresponding range of performances, some more convincing than others. The stories are fictional, set both in America and abroad, with some selections overtly political and immediately relevant to today's political climate. Others, set in different geographical locations or different time periods, are more abstractly related. Generally speaking, all the narrators provide a pleasant and evocative listening experience, with the exception of one male narrator whose raspy voice is a distraction from the several stories he narrates.
