Description
The radical intellectual who penned God Is Not Great, the late Christopher Hitchens helmed this 25th anniversary edition of Best American Essays, which Kirkus Reviews deemed "reliable and yet still surprising—the best of the best." Walter Isaacson considers "How Einstein Divided America's Jews"; Phillip Lopate visits "Brooklyn the Unknowable"; Ian McEwan pays tribute to John Updike; Zadie Smith talks of "Speaking in Tongues"; and David Sedaris entertains with "Guy Walks into a Bar Car." 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 title, as for each of the others, a series editor reviews hundreds of periodicals, then selects between 50 and 100 outstanding works. The guest editor—a recognized expert in the field—then pares the list down to the 20 or so very best pieces.
