9781888889659: The Pushcart Prize XXXVII: Best of the Small Presses (2013 Edition)

The 37th edition of “A distinguished annual literary event.” - New York Times Book Review

For well over three decades, the Pushcart Prize has presented a stunning annual celebration of stories, poems, essays and memoirs from our small presses. Once again this dynamic series proves that small is beautiful.

These 60 brilliant selections, culled from 8000 nominations and hundreds of presses provide "essential reading" (Kirkus) for avid readers of modern literature.

The Pushcart Prize has been named a notable book of the year by the New York Times, picked for several Book of the Month club selections, hailed by Publishers Weekly "as among the most influential books" in American publishing history, and recently awarded The Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement award by the National Book Critics Circle.

This year distinguished poets Bob Hicok and Maxine Kumin serve as poetry co-editors.

About the Author:

Bill Henderson is the founder and editor of the Pushcart Prize. He received the 2006 National Book Critic Circle’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Poets & Writers / Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Award. He is also the author of several memoirs, including All My Dogs: A Life. The founder of the Lead Pencil Club, Henderson lives in New York.

From Booklist:

Bill Henderson kicks off the thirty-seventh Pushcart Prize compendium, as he does each year, with a shrewd and rousing introduction, this time coining an invaluable phrase to describe the digital crush that crowds out so many artistic and reflective voices, A new censorship of clutter. But he is quick to assert that the surge in electronic media also means that more good writing is appearing in more lively, small-press venues than ever before. Each Pushcart volume is magnetized by its best-known contributors, and this edition needs no stronger draw than Marilynne Robinson’s breathtakingly on-the-mark essay On ‘Beauty.’ Other arresting essays include Robin Hemley’s piece on rain forests, both ersatz and authentic, and Andrew Hudgins’ on telling jokes. Guest poetry editors Bob Hicok and Maxine Kumin select poems of startlingly power by Sommer Browning, Christian Flores Garcia, and Diane Wakoski. And the smart, vivid, and unnerving fiction selections include stories by Wendell Berry, Karen Russell, Shannon Cain, and Sarah Cornwell. This annual only grows stronger in its showcasing of imaginative, inquisitive, gutsy, witty, and superbly well-made literary works. --Donna Seaman
