The Best American Series®

First, Best, and Best-Selling

The Best American series is the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. Each volumes series editor selects notable works from hundreds of magazines, journals, and websites. A special guest editor, a leading writer in the field, then chooses the best twenty or so pieces to publish. This unique system has made the Best American series the most respected — and most popular — of its kind.

The Best American Short Stories 2012 includes:

Nathan Englander, Mary Gaitskill, Roxane Gay, Jennifer Haigh,

Steven Millhauser, Alice Munro, Lawrence Osborne, Eric Puchner,

George Saunders, Kate Walbert, and others.

Synopsis:

The Best American Short Stories is the premier annual showcase for the countrys finest short fiction. The 2012 edition is guest edited by Tom Perrotta.

Synopsis:

Edited by critically acclaimed, best-selling author Tom Perrotta, the stories in this year's collection serve as a provacative literary "antenna for what is going on in the world" (Chicago Tribune). The collection boasts great variety from "famous to first-timers, sifted from major magazines and little reviews, grand and little worlds" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), ensuring yet another rewarding, enduring edition of the oldest and best-selling Best American.
