Synopses & Reviews
In 1999, Graywolf will celebrate 25 years of publishing thoughtful and imaginative contemporary literature. This remarkable anthology showcases many of the extraordinary writers who have helped shape Graywolf's first quarter century, including Jane Kenyon, Sven Birkerts, Tess Gallagher, Charles Baxter, and William Stafford. Groundbreaking titles such as Dana Gioia's Can Poetry Matter? and Guillermo Gomez-Pena's Warrior for Gringostoika are represented, along with Brenda Ueland's If You Want to Write, the book that has become one of the great success stories of small press publishing. The anthology also includes an essay by founder Scott Walker on Graywolf's early days as a small letterpress publisher.
