    The best creative nonfiction teaching anthology ever.

    A good collection that includes a range of nonfiction subgenres -- from narrative NF toward lyric essay. The craft essays are especially helpful.

    This is a great introduction to every mode of Creative non fiction. I've used this to teach my grad students the form and think it offers great variety.
