Reviews

"This terrific and surprising collection of tales by a diverse group of writers lives up to Diaz's "rah-rah" (his term) rallying cry for the form... Count on them to transport you." --USA Today

"Its strongest installment yet... Díaz's compilation is the most diverse and inclusive entry to date of any of the major annual story collections... Essential for every student of the short story form." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"This year's collection brings together fine stories by famous fiction writers like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Karen Russell... [while] a great deal of the magic is generated by the appearance of less familiar names... Each of these outstanding stories is, as Diaz observes, a chance to listen 'to some other lone voice struggling to be heard against the great silence.'" --The National Book Review
