Notable Book
Description
For 2012, the highly popular annual contribution to the Best American series from McSweeney's editor and part-time pirate Dave Eggers features an introduction by the late Ray Bradbury on the subject of reading anything and everything, dictated just weeks before he died. Eggers and his writing students unearth pieces from Kevin Brockmeier, Junot Díaz, Louise Erdrich, Julie Otsuka, George Saunders, and Jess Walter, to name a few, as well as comic strips by Nora Krug and Adrian Tomine, and Best American Letters in the Mail, Best American Minutes from the General Assembly of the Occupy Wall Street, and Best American Tweets Responding to the Death of Osama bin Laden. Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. And while other titles in the series are assembled through the efforts of a series editor and guest editor (a recognized expert in the genre), Nonrequired Reading is unique in having its own editorial process, in which writing students select the eligible works and Eggers then pares the list down to the very best pieces.
