As a teacher, I look for and relish in books like this. With the expectations we have to meet, I believe it is imperative to provide students with new, good writing to show them what writers are doing today. It also allows us to bring in more relevant topics. Collections like this help provide a resource for knowing what others look at as worthy of reading.
