The acclaimed author presents an anthology of “confrontational and at times confounding … stories to get lost in” by Colum McCann, Victor Lodato and others (Kirkus Reviews).

In his introduction to this one-hundredth volume of the beloved Best American Short Stories, guest editor T.C. Boyle writes, “The Model T gave way to the Model A and to the Ferrari and the Prius … modernism to postmodernism and post-postmodernism. We advance. We progress. We move on. But we are part of a tradition. ”

Boyle’s choices of stories reflect a vibrant range of characters, from a numb wife who feels alive only in the presence of violence to a new widower coming to terms with his sudden freedom, from a missing child to a champion speedboat racer. These stories will grab hold and surprise, which according to Boyle is “what the best fiction offers, and there was no shortage of such in this year’s selections. ”

The Best American Short Stories 2011 includes entries by Denis Johnson, Louise Erdrich, Elizabeth McCracken, Aria Beth Sloss, Thomas McGuane, and others.
