"If you, like so many of us, are seeking an antidote to Trump’s America, take heart and take refuge in Truth To Power: Writers Respond To The Rhetoric Of Hate And Fear, an anthology of searing nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. Faster than a speeding NRA bullet after the election, Cutthroat, A Journal of the Arts, assembled and published this collection of works, as powerful, compelling, and incisive as they are timely. Individually and collectively, they trumpet a stirring call to action on today’s most crucial issues. Although President Trump is the primary focus, he serves as a prism for these inflamed issues, but is hardly the sole theme of Truth To Power. Pace yourself while reading this intense and intensive 340-page anthology so you can savor the works, and not be overwhelmed. You’ll want to refer to Truth To Power often throughout the next four, or eight years, and beyond." - Marsha Dubrow, Consequence Magazine
