"Turning the pages of The Best American Nonrequired Reading to find Tweets or sheet music creates the kind of unexpected surprise that's often encountered in digital space, but seldom in print...The eclecticism of the sources can be an awakening for the reader who seeks the best writing in books and literary journals...[and] the variety of genres is an apt reflection of contemporary reading culture: not just paragraphs and chapters but expressions in so many different forms...The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2017 lead[s] the reader to a variety of launching points for thinking more about who and where we are."--PopMatters
