I've bought this book in the past, the 2002 edition, and used it mainly as a reference guide to small presses. I expected to do the same with the 2004 version - to see what type of material the presses are publishing, publishing trends in small presses, etc., but I found myself unexpectedly enjoying the book. There is some excellent poetry in here, interesting fiction, and a memoir that I continue to think about.I wish, in the contents, the original publication as well as the author and title, were listed. It's a huge book to skim through to search for which story originated from which publication - though many might find that information unnecessary.

a terrific ensemble!

This book was one of the best Xmas gifts I've ever received. It's loaded with good work, fiction, poetry, memiors, and essays. Evan S. Connell's story alone is worth the price for any one thinking of buying this fine book. I have always liked good writing (the recovering English major that I am), but have felt depressed about the current state of letters. Oprah's book club wasn't cutting it for me (but I loved The Corrections). This antology rescues my faith. Bravo, Mr. Henderson! I'm a Pushcart fan for life.


I read the review in the Cleveland Plain Dealer and immediately bought a copy of the book, gave my copy to a friend and have just purchased a second copy. What a terrific selection of stories! The Cleveland Plain Dealer review by Karen Sandstrom was right on target. This book is packed with great literature!
