Description
In an age of "trigger warnings" for possibly offensive material in college courses, and the censure of speakers who have upset some audience members, this edition of Best American Essays does not shy away from extremes, ambiguities, or dualities. As series editor Robert Atwan notes, the essay "assumes many two-sided forms." The 21 selections presented by Paris Review editor John Jeremiah Sullivan embrace the high and the low, the memoirist's confession and the journalist's reportage, and all the gray areas in between. From a hotel in Mongolia to a Clockwork Orange–like Baltimore, from a Rome emergency to the Burning Man festival, these pieces by such writers as Kristin Dombeck, Dave Eggers, Leslie Jamison, Ariel Levy, Yiyun Li, Barry Lopez, Zadie Smith, Wells Tower, and James Wood surprise and entertain, inform and titillate. 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.
