After very careful deliberation, much discussion, and some agonizing (with input from our four primary readers – publisher, general editor, advisory editor, and proofreader), we have decided to nominate each of the following selections from PAIN AND MEMORY for a Pushcart Prize:
1. “Aisha,” a short story by Rivka Keren, translated from the Hebrew by Maayan Keren (appears on page 1 of the book).
2. “Cartography,” a short story by Tim Nees (appears on page 95 of the book).
3. “Breakfast Mourning,” a poem by Jennifer Clark (appears on page 164 of the book).
Congratulations to the nominees – and many thanks to all of the contributors: we love our authors!
