Description
The Oscar-winning creator of Pan's Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone, Guillermo del Toro introduces this year's Nonrequired Reading, the highly popular annual contribution to the Best American series from McSweeney's editor and part-time pirate Dave Eggers. Along with his writing students in the 826 National program, Eggers has unearthed pieces from Daniel Alarcón, Clare Beams, Sloane Crosley, Neil Gaiman, Mohammed Hanif, and Michael Paterniti, to name a few, as well as Best American Lawsuits, Best American New Brand Names, and Best American Fax from Don DeLillo. Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. Though Nonrequired Reading is unique in having its own editorial process, for the other titles 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.
