Not Like the Rest of Us: An Anthology of Contemporary Indiana Writers features over seventy-five notable Indiana poets, fiction writers, and essayists, including Marianne Boruch, Jared Carter, Mari Evans, Karen Joy Fowler, Helen Frost, John Green, Philip Gulley, Patricia Henley, Susan Neville, Scott Russell Sanders, and Dan Wakefield. The most experienced writers are in their nineties, the youngest in their twenties. Some are best-selling authors, some widely known in literary circles, some just beginning. Many were born and raised in Indiana, others found their way here and stayed.
An officially endorsed Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project, the book extends the appreciation of Indiana's rich literary heritage into the 21st century, celebrating authors who are bringing honor to the Hoosier state in our own time.
