What I like about this book is the diversity it offers in terms of the authors published in the book. It is very much appreciated reading about contemporary authors who are Native-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans, and the like. Their views and writings certainly have added a diverse perspective to the world of literature. The poems, short stories, essays, and fictional drama pieces in the book open a new dimension and perspective in literature. The writings are refreshing and stimulating. They are closely related to reality and allow the imaginative spirit to expand and create specific imagery to go with selected pieces in the book. The instructive portion of the text is wonderful. Each chapter starts with an introduction and insight of what is to come. It breaks down the reading in such a way that the understanding is clear and unambiguous. The variety of exercises following each chapter allows for new perspectives, discussions, visions, and interpretations. This is an excellent book to read.
