Description
The writer's task in a short mystery story is an exacting one, notes guest editor Laura Lippman in her introduction to this year's Best American Mystery anthology; the result must be solid and satisfying, but also provide "the requisite twists and answers" and a "resolution that must never be too on-the-nose." Showcasing writers who have honed this nuanced skill—among them, Megan Abbott, Daniel Alarcón, Russell Banks, James Lee Burke, Patricia Engel, Roxanne Gay, Charlaine Harris, Joseph Heller, and Annie Proulx—this collection offers tightly wound whodunits, puzzling perspectives, and disturbing denouements. 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.
