Summary

As Booklist said, "Once readers discover this superb series, they will look forward to each new volume because each is distinctive, reflecting, as it does, the taste and perspective of the editor." This year Ian Frazier provides an unusually humorous and unpredictable selection, with a strong emphasis on family. The essays - from tall tale to riveting memoir - feature some of our most respected writers, including Susan Sontag, Roy Blount, Jr., Hilton Als, Thomas McGuane, and Joy Williams.
