Description
Though most long-form sports journalism is passed over today in favor of catchy numbered lists, there are still exceptional stories that demand more investigation, detail, and time—the emphasis of guest editor Christopher McDougall in this 24th edition of this renowned anthology. The author of Born to Run, McDougall collects wonderfully diverse facets of the sporting world, including Don Van Natta Jr.'s discovery of Bobby Riggs's love for Billie Jean King, Bucky McMahon's exploration of the uneasy relationship between African surfers and sharks, and Amanda Hess's light-touch homage to the sports bra. 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.
