The Pushcart Prize XXXVII: Best of the Small Presses (Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses)by Bill Henderson
Synopses & Reviews
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.

Daniel Handler and Lemony Snicket compile the year's best new fiction, nonfiction, poetry, comics, and category-defying gems aimed at readers 15 and up.
“Lively, eclectic and surprising.” — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, author of the enormously popular young adult series A Series of Unfortunate Events, takes over as editor for this volume. He will work with the students of 826 Valencia and 826 Michigan writing labs to compile new fiction, nonfiction, poetry, comics, and other category-defying gems, ensuring that “if you need to fall in love with reading again — or just want a reminder that high school students deserve a lot more than their reading lists give them — then this is the book for you” (Bust).
