Description

Critically acclaimed novelist and short story writer Richard Bausch continues the tradition of identifying the best young writers on the cusp of their careers in this year's volume of "Best New American Voices". Here are stories culled from hundreds of writing programs such as the lowa Writers' Workshop and Johns Hopkins and from summer conferences such as Sewanee and Bread Loaf - as well as a complete list of contact information for these programs. This collection showcases tomorrow's literary stars: Julie Orringer, Adam Johnson, William Gay, David Benioff, Rattawut Lapcharoensap, Maile Meloy, Amanda Davis, Jennifer Vanderbes, and John Murray are just some of the acclaimed authors whose early work has appeared in this series since its launch in 2000. The best new American voices are heard here first.
