Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Best American Series

“People will keep reading fiction as long as it provides an experience of pleasure and insight that they can't find anywhere else," writes guest editor Jennifer Egan. The Best American Short Stories 2014 provides pleasurable and insightful fiction that compels, surprises, and engages. From a hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit to the human face of American forces who have served in Afghanistan, from the rise and fall of an indie rocker to the fate of Madame Bovary’s greyhound, the stories in this collection, according to Egan, explore “the wider world at this specific point in time.”

The Best American Short Stories 2014 includes Charles Baxter, Ann Beattie, T. C. Boyle, Joshua Ferris, Lauren Groff, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Joyce Carol Oates, Karen Russell, Laura van den Berg, and others.

[INSERT AUTHOR PHOTO] JENNIFER EGAN, editor, is the author of The Invisible Circus, Emerald City and Other Stories, Look at Me, which was nominated for the National Book Award in 2001, and the best-selling The Keep. Her latest book, A Visit from the Goon Squad, a national bestseller, won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.

HEIDI PITLOR, series editor, is a former senior editor at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. She is the author of the novels The Birthdays and the forthcoming The Daylight Marriage.
