Description
Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning poet Mary Oliver, author of Thirst and American Primitive, here offers a "rich and thoughtful collection" (Publishers Weekly) of the finest essays printed in America in the previous year (2008). Here are Wendell Berry on "Faustian Economics"; Patricia Hampl on "The Dark Art of Description"; and the late John Updike on "The Writer in Winter." Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For this title, as for each of the others, a series editor reviews hundreds of periodicals, then selects between 50 and 100 outstanding works. The guest editor—a recognized expert in the field—then pares the list down to the 20 or so very best pieces.
