Still the only anthology shaped each year by a different guest editor — always a preeminent master of the form — THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES is the essential yearbook of the American literary scene. Here are the most talked about short stories of the year alongside undiscovered gems. In his introduction, guest editor E. L. Doctorow writes, "Here is the felt life conferred by the gifted storyteller . . . who always raises two voices into the lonely universe, the character's and the writer's own." Doctorow has chosen a compelling variety of voices to usher in the new millennium, attesting to the astonishing range of human experience our best writers evoke.
