Praise for The Pittsburgh Anthology “These voices are varied and quirky, some polished and professional sounding, some a little rough around the edges. But they are uniformly interesting and genuine.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette What editor Eric Boyd has chosen to do is temper all of the Most Livable City rah rah with essays, stories and poems of a grittier, more complex nature …Ben Gwin’s beautifully wrought story dealing with heroin and recovery is one of the finest pieces of writing I’ve read all year.” — Pittsburgh Magazine “Characterizing a place can be an elusive project, but The Pittsburgh Anthology is a diverse, surprising, eloquent, playful, scrappy, and tenacious effort to capture one city’s “proud contradictions.” — Ploughshares
