Best American Nonrequired Reading

256 pages.

Featuring a special section of work by authors who divide their time between the West Coast and elsewhere: fiction from Dani Shapiro (“Cardioplegia’) and Molly Giles (“Life Span’), and poetry from Michelle Lin, Allan Peterson, and Alexandra Teague.

Plus, stories about the heart:

  • Marianna Cherry’s “The Endurance”—on love and grieving
  • Chris Leslie-Hynan’s “Hunter’s Moon”—on love and its grand opportunities
  • Michelle Latiolais’s “Gas” and Herbert Gold’s “The Passions of a Fussy Man”—on love and its grim pathways

And fiction about the writing life, the one pursued in the classroom—Lori Ostlund’s “Clear as Cake”—and the deluded one, pursued very much alone—Debbie Graber’s “Northanger Abbey”; tales about teachers, novice—Peter Mountford’s “Safari in the Bayou”—and veteran—Hilda Johnston’s “In Her Dream the Teacher Apologizes”—learning discomfiting truths about themselves.

And introducing exciting debut stories from new talents Rebecca Rukeyser (“The Chinese Barracks”—selected for inclusion in Best American Nonrequired Reading) and Aaron Jae-Ho Shin (“Erroneous”).

Nonfiction from prize-winning Mexican journalist and author Diego Enrique Osorno, who tells the history of a beloved uncle and a community of deaf Mexican migrants making their home in the United States, and the pensées of one of our greatest poets, W.S. Di Piero (“Out of Notebooks”).

And poetry from Joseph Di Prisco, Christopher Buckley, Lynne Knight, Amy Miller, Christian Kiefer, Adam O. Davis, Matthew Nienow, Richard Tillinghast, and Floyd Skloot.

Plus a portfolio of work from artist Meghann Riepenhoff (winner of a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship).
