Television variety shows such as The Ed Sullivan Show used to offer audiences a little of this and a little of that, introducing them to a range of styles in an unintimidating way, making it easy to shake off a dud while continuing to mine for gold. That is what a good anthology such as Indy Writes Books does as well. Lou Harry, Indianapolis Business Journal Indy Writes Books: A Book Lover's Anthology. Published by Indy Reads Books and benefiting the adult-literacy nonprofit Indy Reads, the book features 27 authors, poets, and even puzzle-makers with significant Indiana connections. The publisher nailed the book's physical appearance clever visual play on the cover makes it a handsome collection. But is it any good? Yes quite good, actually. Matt Gonzales, Indianapolis Monthly
