The Pushcart Prize XX: Best of the Small Presses
The most honored literary series in America celebrates two decades of continuous publication..
Winner of Publishers Weekly's Carey-Thomas Award, selected many times as the "outstanding book of the year" by the New York Times Book Review, and chosen for two Book-of-the-Month Club QPBC selections, the annual Pushcart Prize sets the standard of excellence for literary anthologies. Picking from thousands of nominations, each year it presents the most distinguished short stories, essays, and poetry first published by small presses and magazines nationwide; and each year it is hailed as a touchstone of literary discovery.
This year the Pushcart Prize surpasses its own reputation with an astonishing diversity of writers, some renowned and many others destined for fame. Selected from hundreds of journals and presses, Pushcart Prize XX brings together the finest writing in America today and continues its tradition of introducing to a wider public the dazzling literary galaxy of the small press.
