Simply the best

New in store is the best American series, 2010 edition! We have received The Best American Short Stories, The Best American Essays, and The Best American Nonrequired Reading, a short spell after The Best American Comics winged its way here. I am especially excited about the Best American Nonrequired because as you may or may not know, it is edited by Dave Eggers, purveyor of all delightful things.

The best nonrequired reading is also a much looser and more flexible category, resulting in entries like the "Best American Illustrated Missed Connections" and "Best American Overqualified Cover Letters" by none other than (North) American Joey Comeau.

With writing from Sherman Alexie, Etgar Keret, George Saunders, Kurt Vonnegut, and an introduction by David Sedaris, it is a star-studded cast.

But don't you dare think (not even for a second!) that the other offerings in this series are any less impressive: Essays features work from Ian McEwan, Steven Pinker, David Sedaris, and is edited by Christopher Hitchens, while Short Stories lets you explore the work of Jennifer Egan, Ron Rash and Wells Tower.
