THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES 2020

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Curtis Sittenfeld [Intro.], Soneela Nankani, Peter Ganim, Robert Petkoff, Kevin T. Collins, et al.

Fiction • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This varied collection of short stories, selected by author Curtis Sittenfeld, includes works from authors T.C. Boyle, Mary Gaitskill, Elizabeth McCracken, and others, all of which originally appeared in publications ranging from THE NEW YORKER to MCSWEENEY'S. Sittenfeld herself provides an extensive introduction to the audio collection, describing her criteria for selecting these 20 stories from the 120 she received. She also shares what she loved about the selections. The works themselves are skillfully delivered by an assortment of accomplished narrators who maximize the impact of their glimpses into what Sittenfeld describes as "windows into emotions I had and hadn't had, into other settings and circumstances and observations and relationships."
