    This is a fantastic collection of short stories from some of America's most prestigious literary journals and some of it's most talented writers some famous some less well known Highly recommended I'll be looking for other editions in the series

  2. Douglas Lord Douglas Lord says:

    I read short stories because they are A short and B that's all I can handle at the end of a long fricking day sometimes OK Hoss? So get off my back NSFTS is a mixed bag; there seems to be a lot of misery in this New South located somewhere outside Saginaw MI BTW Swamps miscarriages arsonists floods angry stupid people angry stupid teenagers and really poor drivers Like many contemporary short stories these often go nowhere And what they lack in movement growth and evolution is not made up by incisive perceptions These authors present slices of unfamiliar lives in ways that are accessible but also uite particular to the writer Sometimes like in Bret Anthony Johnston's Caiman a five page bang little gem it's fine But the standing still thing ruins so many others like Ann Pancake's anybody for flapjacks? overly long Arsonists and particularly Tim Gautreaux's Idols where a fascinating premise—typewriter repairman inherits crumbling mansion hires rebounding tattooed yokel to fix it—stretches on and on but goes nowhere It could have been beautifulFind reviews of books for men at Books for Dudes Books for Dudes the online reader's advisory column for men from Library Journal Copyright Library Journal

    If you are not reading this annual publication there is something seriously wrong with you The beauty of the short story is that it's short you can dip into this volume of great fiction by writers with a Southern connection at will Read the last one first skip around Whatever Just read and enjoy some of the best writing from 2010 Once you start you'll find it hard to stop and yet you'll want to pause to think on what you just read before jumping into the next selection Some stories are gritty while others are hilarious Most interesting is what each author has to say or not say about the genesis of his or her story I've been reading this series for several years now and can't wait for the 2011 edition appear on the bookshelves I'm even on the search for earlier volumes that were published before I discovered it for myself Enjoy

  5. Wendy Schauben Wendy Schauben says:

    I loved this collection My favorite short stories were the deep and depressing pieces like Evans “Someone Ought To Tell Her There’s Nowhere To Go” and Pederson’s “Small and Heavy World” One of the lessons I learned while reading these short stories is the importance of character development Especially when writing or reading a short story the character needs to stand outto grow or to fall For example in Rash’s “The Ascent” Jared a young boy of 10 realizes his parents are addicted to meth Throughout the novel the reader watches as Jared comes to the conclusion that his parents are headed towards death Jared both rises and falls at the end of the story by killing himself in an abandoned plane to go to “the place they were all headed”

  6. Mark Bell Mark Bell says:

    The entire collection is deserving of a read Other reviews have selected and explained their reasons for highlighting favorite stories and I have one as wellNightblooming by Kenneth Calhoun deserves extra kudos for his choice of narrator characters and plot An outsider with only one thing in common with the groupmakes for the perfect narrator He stands aloof from the plot at times and other times the plot forces him into the group interaction A masterful tale of lining up to die Old age sucks His characters know it his narrator learns it and most importantly so does the reader

  7. Stephen Dorneman Stephen Dorneman says:

    A solid collection of stories make up the 25th annual version of this anthology Highlights include Kenneth Calhoun's NIGHTBLOOMING Aaron Gwyn's DRIVE and Megan Mayhew Bergman's THE COW THAT MILKED HERSELF I read this than five years after they were first published but unlike some Best Of collections all of these stories sit in a Southern state of timelessness that is well worth your attention today

  8. Tuck Tuck says:

    adam atlas is good but my god these stories are super sad super graphic some gems but cut you like broken glass the kind that hurts amy hempel you're one sick puppy which is a good thing i guess keep up the good work now i gotta go get a bandaid

  9. Aran Aran says:

    Liked this collection than Best American and probably than PenO'Henry several repeats from those anthologies in here Liked Discovered America and This Trembling Earth and Nightblooming And definitely NOT Drive Story stories with nothing to prove

  10. Elizabeth Ruth Elizabeth Ruth says:
