I but these "Best American Short Stories" collections every year along with a couple of other titles in the "Best American" series. Sometimes, the editor has made selections that I very much enjoy, and other times, not so much. This particular collection was one of the best, if not THE best I've been able to read. The editor selected stories which demonstrated not only wonderful writing skill, but also one that told riveting, or, at least, interesting stories. There were a couple I didn't like, so I skipped them. After all, that's what anthologies are for. But generally speaking, I was pleased to have read this book and found myself reading from one story to the next in much the same way I would a good novel. It was just too good to put down.
Every year, there is a new editor for these collections. Future editors should work on learning and applying Jennifer Egan's secrets to their task. They worked extremely well for her. ( )

Sifting through the hundreds, maybe thousands, of short stories published in North America in any one year must be an arduous but rewarding task. Jennifer Egan’s selection here tends towards fairly traditional short stories but with enough variation that the collection still has room to surprise. A quarter of the stories in the short list come from The New Yorker, a much higher representation than in the long list, so Egan’s preferences do show through. However, since at least some of those stories are the best ones in this collection, nothing turns on it.

For me the stories that stood out were Joyce Carol Oates’ “Mastiff”, O. A. Lindsey’s “Evie M.”, Joshua Ferris’ “The Breeze”, and Ann Beattie’s “The Indian Uprising”. Is it surprising that Oates and Beattie can still astound? Probably not since they are clearly masters of their craft. I was surprised by the Joshua Ferris because I’d recently been disappointed by one of his novels. Here he shows that he deserves his reputation despite my reservations. And Lindsey’s story is perhaps the most raw and harrowing of the bunch. Altogether a worthy collection that continues to remind us of the enduring power of the short story form. ( )
