Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Henderson culls the year's best short stories, poetry and essays from lit mags and small presses and proves once again that the small venues are great sources for discovering new writers and staying current with the lions. Nam Le's hard-hitting Cartagena starts off the collection with a stark portrayal of a Colombian hit man in over his head. In Stephanie Powell Watts's Unassigned Territory, a reluctant young black Jehovah's Witness finds herself searching for meaningful human connection while handing out Watchtowers in backwoods North Carolina. In Rick Bass's subtle and brilliant Goats, two aspiring cattle barons roam the outskirts of Houston, buying scrawny calves while keeping tabs on an aging rancher suffering from dementia. Herb Golbert remembers Saul Bellow in A Genius for Grief, while the posthumously published poem of Liam Rector, who committed suicide earlier this year, evokes a Pulitzer winner contemplating his failure to love (That's where I truly fucked up./ I couldn't). Steven Millhauser's The Dome offers a creepy if all-too-plausible view of the future in which communities seal themselves off beneath plastic domes. Hipsters and boomers alike will find something to appreciate in this powerhouse. (Dec.)

This is the first time I have seen one of the Pushcart Prize Collections. I find it amazingly broad in scope and consistently outstanding in quality. Since I have become more chronologically gifted (55), I find myself drawn to shorter works of fiction. Not simply because I am busy, but also because each work gives me an insight into another's world. To be able to do this in a few minutes, instead of several hours is refreshing. I highly recommend the collection for all readers. I have it on my desk and stop to read a selection or two each day.

Format: Paperback
If the words "Small Presses" in the title of this collection signify to you that these pieces are likely amateurish or second-rate, think again. "Small Presses" includes almost all of the journals in the U.S. that regularly publish short fiction or poetry with only The New Yorker and Harper's notably excluded. Thus, this edition includes selections initially published in some of the most respected literary journals (Ploughshares, The Paris Review, The Kenyon Review). It also identifies gems from less expected sources (The North Dakota Quarterly, The Idaho Review). And in this edition, as in most years, major talents both established (Joyce Carol Oates, Galway Kinnell, Robert Olen Butler) and emerging (Lauren Groff, Nam Le) are included. This dense collection contains more than 60 selections and offers more bang for the buck than almost any other anthology.

Amazing stuff! Was particularly interested in reading writers whose work is new to me. BLESSING OF THE NEW MOON, by A. P. Miller is brilliant -- an exciting new face in small press literature.
