Summary

Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundreds of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind. Here you will find a "splendid array of unpredictable and delectable essays" chosen by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Louis Menand, another collection with "delights on every page". The Best American Essays once again earns its place as the liveliest and leading annual of its kind.
