"Why I'm a Democrat" is a book about politics that isn't too political. To reveal the heart of the party through the ties that bind its members, editor Susan Mulcahy has compiled a dazzling array of answers to the title question in the form of interviews, essays, emails, lists, and artwork. The result is a lively even slightly voyeuristic glimpse at what makes members of the party, from all across the country and from all walks of life, tick. Contributors include: Nora Ephron, Frank McCourt, Irma Thomas, Dominick Dunne, Isaac Mizrahi, Tama Janowitz, Melissa Etheridge, Roz Chast, Craig Lesley, Jonathan Franzen, Frans de Waal, Maira Kalman, James Brady, Olympia Vernon, Paul Weitz, William Wegman, Seymour Chwast, James Naughton, Min Jin Lee and many others, including farmers, scientists, CEOs, union workers, former Republicans, and a Philly cheesesteak maker.
