The Best American Short Stories series began in 1915, but it wasn't until 1978, when Houghton Mifflin hit on the idea of guest editors that the once popular annuals soared to unprecedented heights. This year's anthology is hosted by Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Critics Circle Award-winner Jennifer Egan. She presides over a 364-page gathering of short stories by writers known and unknown. A trade paperback and NOOK Book original.
