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 another qsplendid array of unpredictable and delectable essaysq (Booklist), chosen by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Louis Menand, another collection with qdelights on every pageq (Dallas Morning News). The Best American Essays once again earns its place as the liveliest and leading annual of its kind.
