The Best American series, for those unfamiliar with the series, consists of a range of stories published in US and Canadian journals from the previous year. About a hundred of these are then read and selected by the guest editor, and, in this year’s case, Richard Russo did the choosing, selecting a final list of 20 stories, now collected in this volume.

I found the stories in this volume exceptionally compelling and readable – with many being of the über-length variety, running to many pages, with the writers taking time to tell the tales, really letting each story breathe and glow.
