Description
In his introduction to this 100th volume of The Best American Short Stories, guest editor T.C. Boyle writes, "The Model T gave way to the Model A and to the Ferrari and the Prius ... modernism to postmodernism and post-postmodernism. We advance. We progress. We move on. But we are part of a tradition." Here he has selected 20 stories that grab hold and surprise us—which according to Boyle is "what the best fiction offers, and there was no shortage of such in this year's selections"—from writers like Megan Mayhew Bergman, Diane Cook, Louise Erdrich, Denis Johnson, Colum McCann, Maile Meloy, Shobha Rao, Joan Silber, and Jess Walter. Mulling over the question of character likability, series editor Heidi Pitlor asks, "Did I like these characters? I very much liked reading their stories. Here are characters, she notes, who are "living, breathing people who screw up terribly and want and need and think uneasy thoughts." 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 this edition, as for the others in the series, the series editor first reviewed hundreds of periodicals from the previous publishing year, selecting between 50 and 100 outstanding works, before the guest editor made the final selection of the very best pieces.
