The Pittsburgh Anthology tells the story of Pittsburgh past and present from fresh, unconventional, literary perspectives. Contributors include Terrance Hayes, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Matthew Newton, Yona Harvey, Ben Gwin, Jody DiPerna, Robert Yune, Robert Gibb, Rebecca Morgan, Amy Jo Burns, Melanie Cox McCluskey and Robert Qualters. “The essays and poems and pictures and paintings in Belt’s Pittsburgh Anthology deliver the city–the old, sweet, tragic, obsolete, provincial, brawny, polluted, insular, doofy Pittsburgh of the past and the younger, overeducated, white-collar, still-redlined, corporate, hipsterish, high-tech, broke, triumphal Pittsburgh of today, as well as the weird anxiety Pittsburghers feel, knowing the city finally has a future but unsure who’ll get left behind this time. ” –Stewart O’Nan

My Thoughts:

I live and grew up in Pittsburgh. It was fun to read about how Pittsburgh use to be in the past. We all know that Pittsburgh use to be a booming Steel Mill town. Pittsburgh is so much more than that though.

I learned new things about my beloved city and revised things I already knew. I loved the old pictures that are included. It’s fun to see how the city use to look.

This is a great book for anyone from Pittsburgh, or someone that collects books about different cities.
I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.
