The insights and observations are moving, often poetic, and always compelling. This is a book to cherish and one you'll read and reread for years to come." --Marcia Clark, New York Times bestselling author "Shattering Glass is an anthology unlike anything I’ve seen before, a diverse collection of high-caliber short fiction, provocative essays, and engaging conversations and interviews, tied together thematically by the writers’ collective commitment to create work that explores our current cultural moment. Opening with Valerie Plame’s fiery call for political engagement and closing with Heather Graham’s poignant reflection on the values instilled by her immigrant parents, this collection surprises and enlightens.
