Summaries and Reviews
The acclaimed annual short fiction series--this year featuring guest editor Barbara Kingsolver--showcases the works of Alice Munro, Rick Moody, John Updike, Dorothy West, and many other notable authors. (view table of contents) description: Product Description:
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 and twenty 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.

A wonderfully diverse collection, this year's BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES from Hollywood to Hong Kong, from the Jersey shore to Wales, considering the biggest issues: love, war, health, success. Edited by the critically acclaimed, best-selling author Barbara Kingsolver, THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES 2001 includes selections by Rick Bass, Ha Jin, Alice Munro, John Updike, and others. Highlighting exciting new voices as well as established masters of the form, this year's collection is a testament to the good health of contemporary short fiction in this country.
