    1. It looks like this will be a book full of decent poetry and fiction That being said, I am a bit turned off by the Luddite attitude of the editor Apparently anything but a traditionally bound text is a fake book He comes off as so extremely elitist it s little wonder people think me pretentious when they find out I write poetry.


    2. I was really pleased with the poetry selections in this year s pushcart anthology There were the usual big hitters Chase Twitchell, Paul Muldoon and Louise Gluck, but also a few poets I ve not heard of, and I read contemporary poetry pretty widely My favorite The Problem of Water by Emily Toder, originally published in Sixth Finch Favorite line The second problem of water is that it is tempting for people to give birth in it and, Water is often offered after there has been a human problem.


    3. As the cover states There is nothing quite like this labor of love The Best of Small Pesses, big writings.Of course, as with all books of this type, you don t love every story, every poem But there are many that will languish in my memory, a few I will even pass on to others.I m not usually a poem person, to literal for all that, but there are a few in this genre that also spoke loudly to me.


    4. A book that actually has an accurate Date started and Date finished time Pushcart Prize is a great anthology Well established authors sit alongside newer authors, and I honestly never really noticed a difference in quality The only pieces I consistently didn t like were the non fiction pieces about other authors, and this was due to my lack of familiarity with the authors they were discussing Also, format wise, this is really cool because they usually place poems next to fiction next to non fict [...]


    5. This was not my favorite Pushcart entry, but there were still standouts than in most other anthologies Frost Mountain Picnic Massacre, by Seth Fried The Cousins, by Charles Baxter Lores of Last Unicorns, by Jen Hirt Fem Care, by Elliott Holt Shelter, by Susan Perabo The Watermark, by Susan McCallum Smith Pet, by Deb Olin Unferth Mot, by Sarah Einstein


    6. The Jess Row story Sheep May Safely Graze absorbed me as did the Deb Olin Unfert Pet story This looks to be one of the best Pushcart collections in a number of years On the downside, this volume seems to have played it safer with many well known names.Valerie Vogrin s Things We ll Need for the Coming Difficulties is the most absorbing short story I have read this year I wanted it never to end I wanted a novel.


    7. The fiction is outstanding Detailed Comments on each story plus summary with possible spoilers available at A Just Recompense


    8. I had to pack this book to move, so I m marking it read I m kind of reading this off and on I don t know that I ll finish the whole thing But I ll at least read a representative sample before I mark it as read Read in past tense if this is marked as read.



    9. Everything in this anthology won a Pushcart Prize what can I say, really This was my first time reading a Pushcart collection, and now I m kind of obsessed.




    10. I will never again miss the chance to read the annual Pushcart Prize book, cover to cover Best of the small presses is exactly what this book delivers to a reader s delight.



    11. Good collection of short stories, although a few I skipped Anthony Dooer s The River Nemunas stands out, a great telling of a young boy s path from the grief of the loss of his parents.
