American Odysseys is an anthology of 22 novelists, poets, and short story writers. The title for this book is printed on a pencil which is then inserted into a die-cut in the cover. The pencil was chosen as a symbol of the writer and of the writing process. For many of us, the pencil is the first introduction to creating letters, words, and—later on—sentences. The stories contained within are of a personal nature, and the intimate quality of the pencil seemed to be the perfect complement.
