The book is finally out! As many of you know, I won a Pushcart Prize for my essay “Glad To Be Human,” which was originally published in the “Tusculum Review” and is now included in the 2012 edition of The Pushcart Prize – Best of the Small Presses. The series, which has been published every year since 1976, has featured hundreds of presses and thousands of writers of short stories, poetry and essays. Writers who were first noticed due to inclusion in the prestigious annual collection include Raymond Carver, Tim O’Brien, Jayne Anne Phillips, Charles Baxter, Andre Dubus, Susan Minot, Mona Simpson, John Irving and Rick Moody. I would say I’m in some pretty good company, wouldn’t you?

 

The book is available through the distributor W.W. Norton & Company, as well as on Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.

I’ve won a Pushcart Prize!
