I have read so many annual anthologies of the best creative writing published in the literary world and always feel short--changed. Much of the work in other anthologies is dry, distant, even boring at times. The Pushcart Prize doesn't seem to adhere to the academic idea that tradition is what's most important. This anthology does not exclude work that breaks from tradition and that is why it's such an effective book. There are many great prose pieces and poems in here. There is so much diversity here. If you're tired of boring collections with work from writers that are just too similar and dull, check out the Pushcart series.

The stories in this one are especially good. I'll use it in a writing class. (Much better than one of those for-profit anthologies) theErin McGraw story is worth it alone.

Great short stories.and poems that even an infrequent poetry reader like myself can enjoy. Some of the pieces were too out there for me.
