Praise For…


“As guest editor of this year’s entry in the Best American Short Stories series, [Jesmyn] Ward has assembled a brilliant and moving collection...These 20 stories capture beautiful and devastating human experiences and the tales we tell to persevere. Contributors' captivating prose and incredible storytelling will plunge readers into fascinating worlds and challenge them to take on new perspectives.” — Booklist (starred review) on The Best American Short Stories 2021

“If you feel uneasy choosing just one author’s collection, let a witty novelist pick the best stories of the year for you.”  — Nicole Y. Chung, Washington Post

“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 on Best American Short Stories 2018

“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.’”  — National Book Review on The Best American Short Stories 2018

“This anthology rejoices in its range of subject matter, its emotional complexity and its depiction of quietly powerful moments.” — Shelf Awareness on The Best American Short Stories 2019

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
