“The whole writing process was a mixture of fun and fear. My goal from the very beginning was to be real. Not almost real.”
— Coe Booth


PUSH is about discovering the voices of here and now. It is about telling stories—some true, some fiction, some a mix of true and fiction—that feel real even when they're not. These are authors who get what life can be like. The pain and the joy. Vulnerability and the twisted roots of identity. Self-destruction and the strange journeys we take toward recovery.

Our challenge—and our promise—is to keep finding new voices to ring out the complicated truth of today.
