Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adam Johnson, William Gay, David Benioff, Ana Menendez, Maile Meloy, Timothy Westmoreland, Amanda Davis, Jennifer Vanderbes, and John Murray: These are just some of the acclaimed writers whose early work has appeared in Best New American Voices since its launch in 2000. This year's volume, featuring seventeen new stories selected by award-winning novelist John Casey, continues the tradition of identifying the best young writers on the cusp of their careers. With pieces culled from hundreds of prestigious writing programs such as the Iowa Writers' Workshop and Johns Hopkins and from summer conferences including Sewanee and Bread Loaf — and with a complete list of contact information for these programs — this rich, entertaining collection showcases tomorrow's literary stars.
