Edited by Doerr Anthony Doerr, Pitlor Heidi Pitlor
Part of the The Best American Series (R) series
';As soon as you complete a description of what a good story must be, a new example flutters through an open window, lands on your sleeve, and proves your description wrong,' writes Anthony Doerr about the task of selecting The Best American Short Stories 2019. The year's best stories are a diverse, addictive group exploring everything from America's rich rural culture to its online teen culture to the fragile nature of the therapist-client relationship. This astonishing collection brings together the realistic and dystopic, humor and terror. For Doerr, ';with every new artist, we simultaneously refine and expand our understanding of what the form can be.'
The Best American Short Stories 2019 includes Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, Jamel Brinkley, Jeffrey Eugenides, Ursula K. Le Guin, Manuel Muoz, Sigrid Nunez, Sad Sayrafiezadeh, Jim Shepherd, Weike Wang, and others.
