Description
The head pirate at McSweeney's website and author of What is the What?, Dave Eggers again helms what has become one of the most required collections of the Best American series, the Nonrequired Reading, shamelessly "borrowing" the labors of his young writing students at 826 Valencia to cull the most intriguing tidbits from the dark corners of the literary world. For 2008, find pieces from such contributors as Stephen King, Woody Allen, Karen Joy Fowler, Andrew Sean Greer, George Saunders, and Gene Weingarten. Judy Blume offers up an introduction. 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 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.
