This is the fifth time an upstreet work has been mentioned in one of the prestigious annual Best American anthologies. Earlier this year, Phyllis Barber’s upstreet number five essay, “Sweetgrass,” was cited in Best American Essays 2010. Last year, Frank Tempone’s essay, “Everlasting,” was listed in Best American Nonrequired Reading 2009, and Katherine Lien Chariott’s “Vocabulary Lesson” and Michael Martone’s “Hermes Goes to College” were cited in Best American Essays 2009; all three essays were from the award-winning upstreet number four.
