Yeah, The Rehearsal is such a great book - so great that she won. Perhaps your book will be in the Montana's next year. They should perhaps make a small press category in it if they are thinking of making changes.
Ele is fantastic. I haven't read the novel yet, but I've read a couple of short stories, and am jealous. The only story I've written that has worked is the one in Prima Storia.The book awards are a strange animal - Joanna Preston has an interesting post on the subject here:http://jopre.wordpress.com/2009/06/09/book-awards-%e2%80%93-do-they-make-a-difference/and how the costs involved in entering are often prohibitive for small-press publishers.I think I may have to wait until I (fingers crossed) get a collection picked up by a University Press - and I have a feeling my work is a bit too out there even for AUP, let alone VUP or someone like that.
