Description
A New York Times op-ed columnist and the author of The Socialist Animal, as well as a commentator on the PBS NewsHour and NPR's All Things Considered, David Brooks gives us Marcia Angell on "The Crazy State of Psychiatry" and Geoffrey Bent on "Edward Hopper and the Geometry of Despair." Joseph Epstein offers a fascinating treatise on boredom, Malcolm Gladwell considers the creative origins of high-tech products in "Creation Myth," Sandra Tsing Loh surveys the burgeoning bookshelf of menopause self-help in "The Bitch Is Back," and Jonathan Franzen talks about escape and the death of his friend David Foster Wallace in "Farther Away." 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.
